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.

Read them and vote for your favorite after you are done reading them. Also, please feel free to leave a comment and share the mushroom poetry with your friends. Don’t deprive your friends of the pleasure of reading these little poems – share the link!


5 Haikus in English – Mushroom Poems


Haiku #1

Fungi leave darkness

As sun’s light beams down on them

White caps shine brightly


Haiku #2

Beautiful are we

Fairy mushrooms in the grass

Not to eat – poison


Haiku #3

From earth up we spring

To savor the light, the wind

For short time to spawn


Haiku #4

Fruiting bodies show

Below this ground fungi grow

On organic meals


Haiku #5

Mushrooms sprout in ring

For fairies to dance within

Under moon’s bright glow

Sounds like someone has a love of mushrooms! Is there mush room in your life for anything else? :)

Angelo, I know the saying is that if life hands you lemons, make lemonade, but I'm not sure it directly follows that if life hands you mushrooms, write haikus, but I enjoyed these anyway. :-) I liked the second one best, as you can see.
