Ferns and Mushrooms

“I could cry you a river
but the well in me is dry
I am tir’d of deferment
beware what I here untie
there’s a haste in my step
trembling what beneath me lies
I am honed for the kill
pleased if you would just comply!”,

screamed the wind that tore through the boughs of the trees,
through a valley of green, of ferns and mushrooms,
that drew colours on your tongue with the nectar of a moonflower,
and you can feast on your instincts that have glow(n) through time.


  1. I love this one. Ferns and mushrooms - you take something so simple and turn it into beauty!

  2. I like it. You most definitely can paint a picture with words dear Ms. V!!! Well done.

  3. I like the sing song feel of that opening verse until you get to the last lines. Comply with the killing. Yikes. I love me some nature so I like dipping into the colours, the nectar of moonflower sounds quite magic as well.

  4. A feeling of being overwhelmed, of silent emotions waiting to burst out, of visions of emptiness and weakness, or something along those lines?

  5. Beautiful! Beautiful!

    wow!!! You have a way with words, your poetry speaks with such romanticism, flowing the current waves of light and hope.

    gosh!!! I love this poem you wrote.

    P.S Stop by my page. I posted a new poem Yesterday...It's sci-fi and its titled: This robot dreams inside a plastic soul. Hope you like it. :)

  6. Powerful and creative poem ~

    Happy week to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  7. I love the way your parenthetical (n) in the last line turns the phrase into "half glow" ... "you can feast on your instincts that half-glow through time." That is awesome!

    Also this:
    "I am tir’d of deferment
    beware what I here untie"

    And too, the screaming wind, along with this: "that drew colours on your tongue with the nectar of a moonflower"

    Beautiful work!

  8. Well crafted imageries...smooth flow of words..

  9. This is beautiful! Wish I could write so beautifully.
