Discussing Mushrooms

It was mid-Autumn a time when mushrooms were plentiful on the farm especially if there had been the warm rain, we all would go out on the farm and gather mushrooms in our bucket.This particular year there was a shortage of them so some that were over ripe were picked to feed our family of seven. Some of those mushrooms were not suitable for eating never the less they were cooked.

With the results even now the thought of ever eating mushrooms at all, especially in a white sauce turns my stomach inside out, and I can still feel that belt that thrashed my body, leaving welts all over it.

Eating whitebait still reminds me of those white maggot looking grubs floating around in the mushroom sauce.

eating brown mushrooms
the kind that grow on a farm
autumn reminds me

My Poem is  Pantoum Poetry using a photo as a prompt

What do you think happened here?
Was there a bushfire?
Could it have been an earthquake?
There are signs of a possible landslide.

Was there a bushfire?
The grass is starting to grow on the soil.
There are signs of a possible landslide.
Certainly looks more like a fire.

The grass is starting to grow on the soil
Looks like no one lives here now.
Certainly looks more like a fire.
But no burnt logs around.

Looks like no one lives here now.
Did a fire destroy this farm?
But no burnt logs around.
It is a mystery what really happen

Did a fire destroy this farm?
Could it have been an earthquake?
It is a mystery what really happen
What do you think happened here?

You can answer that question in the comments if you like.

Thanks for reading.

#dVerse Quadrille – No Spark Here

#dVerse – No Spark Here

Winters gone

weather warming up

birds are singing

No Spark here

Christmas approaching

where do I start

family scattered in every direction

where have those years gone

Great grandchildren

hardly know their great grandparents

sadly they all have their own life

No Spark Here.
