Toadstools

- By Ruth Calder Murphy -


You fling yourselves upwards,

overnight,

with joyful abandon,

never caring

one whit

that this is it -

a single day for you to shine

your fragile lanterns

and provide places

for faeries

to sit.

Your impromptu forest

in the grass

will not last -

is quickly gone -

leaving traces of magic

where there was none…

And yet,

you stand,

glorious,

your spirited springing -

your leaping to life -

bringing hope to every mundane moment

and winking Divinity

at every dormant possibility.
