Behold the Mushroom #poetry #haiku #photography

painted mushroom

Fungus spores adapt

holding to what  cannot change

terra struggles on


Terra struggles on

life trusts in a lump of clay

existence persists

Today’s Carpe Diem prompt from the book by Paulo Coelho, author of “Manuscript found in Accra”, is Intolerance. I took my inspiration from this mushroom and the adaptability of nature and yet the land endures.
