Love Poem to Shitake

who are you, really?
you are so elusive like Pluto the moon
lunar disked
you were there
ready to greet me early
in the world
my first experience
of you though from desiccated form
were filling enough
but in Japan I discovered you
fresh
as the day is plump juicy
& whole
fighting cancer building bones
cleaning blood you make me stronger
than I would be

luscious
fungus you are sweet
unapologetic
secretly growing in the enigmatic dark
is where you get your power
exuding confidence
in fried rice soups stir fries spring rolls
in everything I surrender
to you my utmost care
preparing you for the meal
to you I surrender
your delicate umber
stout umbrellas
thick protective legs

yes you are physically obtuse
but love is in the mouth
not in the eyes

- Mong Lan

The Painted Garden of the Villa di Livia, Prima Porta, Rome
This lush painted garden covered the walls of a semi-subterranean chamber, probably a cool triclinium (dining room) for summer banquets, in the suburban Villa of Livia Drusilla, the wife of  the Emperor Augustus.
This Second style fresco, the most ancient example of continuous garden painting (30 - 20 BCE), presents a variety of plants and birds rendered in a naturalistic way.
