into the mystery

deep in the ravine
between the naked trunks
of tall trees finding light
are the bright red mushrooms
that grow unseen
among shadows.

there is no path,
no ladder, no stairs
to the depths.
your feet know
the slippery ways
of moss boulders
and leaf mold –
they have walked here in dream,
waiting for you to follow
