The Great Mushroom Hunt

I like the way time stands still
When I don't turn the calendar
Just after a warm rain in Spring

February 2011...never left; didn't
Want to-
March 2012...Lent begins; my
Favorite time of year-

Every leaf must be unturned
Faces might appear
Mayhem awaits every discovery

One goal looms...

My calendars must be turned
Before May

Before mushrooms spoil

    Heya, Jimbo. I removed my blog. I want you to know that I always considered you a friend here at the Soup. During times when we might have butted heads, I believe it was you trying to keep me in check, in a very positive manner, and I thank you for that. Many times while I was being immature or overly boisterous, you would leave a comment on a blog that got through to me. It didn't go unnoticed. I have always enjoyed your poetry and company. Thanks, bud!
