Poem: The Winter Mushroom

tiny-fragile-mushroom-chuck-buckner

Love may be infinite
But it’s expression can be as perishable
As a Winter Mushroom
Not every spore produces a toadstool
Any more than every longing bears fruit
From imagination
To germination
The heart looks for fertile soil
In which to ground itself.
