Mushroom Poetry in English Haikus Style
Fully Open Mushroom
Introduction to these Haiku Mushroom Poems
Mushrooms come and mushrooms go but sometimes they emerge in such abundance that they make an impression. These offered me a chance to get some photos. They also opened up my mind to the possibility of writing mushroom poetry. I have chosen to present in this article 5 poems written in the style of English haikus.
Short and easy to read all of these haikus follow the traditional form of 5-7-5. That is the first sentence is 5 syllables long, the second sentence is 7 syllables long and the third reverts back to being 5 syllables long. A lot of meaning can be packed into those 3 small sentences that form each of these haikus in English.

5 Haikus in English – Mushroom Poems
Fungi leave darkness
As sun’s light beams down on them
White caps shine brightly
Beautiful are we
Fairy mushrooms in the grass
Not to eat – poison
From earth up we spring
To savor the light, the wind
For short time to spawn
Fruiting bodies show
Below this ground fungi grow
On organic meals
Mushrooms sprout in ring
For fairies to dance within
Under moon’s bright glow
Mushrooms in the Lawn
