Celebrating National Poetry Month: Mushrooms, David Marvin 

mushrooms, David Marvin


Not plant, not animal, 

These fungal beings grow

In shady spots ill-suited to grass, 

On trees rotting in the woods

On bark open to infection

In grass too wet to thrive. 

Popping overnight from spores unseen

And unseeable they thrive.

mushrooms, David Marvin
