The Hunt.

I went into the woods on a bit of a hunt.
It's my favorite season in the Oregon forest, mushroom time.
These fruit flowers of the fungal world have my heart.
Sometimes I like to learn their names,
most times I just want to find them, 
and see the funny places they choose to grow.
All the time I like to pretend to be a small wee folk,
an elfin friend who uses these as a bit of shade.
So, when you come across a girl in the woods laying on the ground,
peering up at the underside of mushroom caps,
that's just me in make believe land.
Join me, there is plenty of room.
