A walk in the woods. Another land, a different world. Green above, bue of sky, leaves fluttering. Something to see all around. But hey, the fun part is down here, on the ground, meet the fun-guys and the purple parasols……
It all started with this tree stump. I spotted the mushrooms sprouting at the base there. Hmmm have to get closer for a better look.
This is like a mushroom madness, they are piled up one on top of the other, textures and shapes, and look at the golden light on them. The clover just s to tell you this is the entry to fairydom. Or maybe the rabbit hole where the White Rabbit led Alice all those years ago.
The whole tree stump turned out to be a fungus factory. Mushrooms were everywhere. Different types, singles, doubles, big and small. Like weird buildings of strange architecture hugging the miniature landscape.
Tread carefully or you may break the spell and trample a life. Who knows who lives in the mushroom houses. That tiny world of elfin grace. Words whispered so you can barely hear, stop your clock and listen – be here right now with the moment.
Nature taking back her gifts. The colour fading the surface disolving, sinking back into the land from which it came. Like watercolours spreading and fading into a painting, you must look and look again.
A miniature world of Avatar. Who needs the special effects of a Hollywood blockbuster when this is on the ground before us. Imagine the lives, the strange folks, the tree of life and the adventures. One would have to live an adventurous life in the Land Of The Purple Parasols.
I see no Tesco shopping, school runs, housework and chores in this world. Oh no, you are mounting your 6-legged steed and hunting the wild snark, you are flying in butterfly carriages to visit castles made from pumpkins and flowers hold delights unknown.
A tiny world, a detailed little amazing world. You have the world at your feet.
So we are back to that rabbit hole again, the entry to adventure. All this with just looking at mushrooms. Can you imagine what I’d be like if I ate them…………………..
