John Cage: “Mushroom Haiku”

Red Dragonfly posted a highly pleasurable gathering of classic and contemporary mushroom haiku, photographs and illustrations, including the above recorded contemplation by John Cage. Slowly, slowly, Issa’s snail ascends Mount Fuji . . . ~ yours truly, df

Also, from the same mushroom haiku gathering at Red Dragonfly, are the following poems that are now part of me:

pine mushrooms
live a thousand years
in one autumn

Den Sutejo (1633 – 1698)
Makoto Ueda, translation

 

mushrooms the flesh of rain
