Mushrooms

Picking mushrooms
you can barely sense the might of
mycorrhiza growing down below,
how it tangles with the roots,
embrace the trees
and links with soil to feed the bloom in spring.

It’s hard to comprehend how ants
and fungi interact,
because the wood was never made
for chainsaws or for us
It has a purpose
for the mushrooms and its own.
