For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: quench.
The roots reaching for the earth and water and to be strong and to quench the trees’ thirst.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: empower.
J and I did not pick these mushrooms. We only picked two kinds, that we were both sure were edible. We must have seen about 15 species or more… I feel empowered to collect mushrooms and eat those we are sure of, but I am going to be very very cautious about others.
And I have had people say that they would never eat a mushroom that someone collected. I know some of the mushroom collectors that sell to our food coop and I trust them. Do we trust things in stores more than our wilderness now? And yet some things in stores are not safe….

every time I turn something off
I turn the television off in 2011
I turn Facebook off for a while
I turn the computer off every morning
I turn the radio off
the stereo off
the lights off
the heat off
I listen to the wind
I feel the wind
she is present
she touches me back
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: serendipity.
