Sea anemones invaded the cedars

In the spring rain,
the cedars bear alien fruit:
gelatinous growth
like orange sea anemones,
slimy creatures whose
slippery tendrils quiver
sporeful 
revolting and fascinating
life
fills all niches

gosh, have you entered the word vision contest yet? If you touched this up a bit to fit his rules, It would be a great qualifying entry.

No, I have not. I'll go check it out. Lately, I have not felt inspired to write for contests; I find I do better work if I write just what comes to my mind.

What a cute and informative poem, Agnes! I know about the 'pests' that sometimes invade my citrus trees, but had no idea that this type of fungus existed. Maybe I ought to get me an apple tree:) Regards // paul

Thanks, Paul. I didn't know these existed until we moved here and have cedars on our property - no apple trees near, not sure where the fungus finds its other host.

Thanks, Jan. It was raining all day, and the fungi swelled on the cedars and were the only colorful thing in a sea of grey and some green - fascinating things.
