As summer’s arc bends,
pulling its vivid greens from the
mushrooms appear, rushing across sphagnum
like the tide,
whispering secrets in mycelium and spore,
rising under skies
to hold stars.
Traveler, you are welcome here.
Bring along your deepest night, where
grows a thicket in the deeps.
For within its rich and rippling web
glows a luminescent
Traveler, this is the way.
Follow the bouys of sprouting caps, bright
as the leaves that circle you.
Fall down gills and stems that bend with waves
to the earthen sea below
where sings the
song of untold currents
flooding your every rooted night
with the siren’s
of your own unwavering
Traveler, welcome home.
