Twisting in and out of light.
A rainbow game of hide and seek with the aging sun.
Colors blush at the mirror mountain.
And nap when their play is done.
Bear's Head Tooth Mushroom (Hericium americanum) dripping
moonlit spores and netherworld scents into the day.
Ruffed grouse (Bonasa umbellus) regarding the changing world
with jittery, skyward toes.
Twin oaks aloft with green
watch over zigzag storms of yellow and red
each time the wind thinks to blow.
