The Kingdom of the Grey


Beneath the woodland floor
You look for more
Stare at the grey:
A moon from outer space;


Another web ;another world
Skeins unfurled
Drawn of fine strands
And white fungal lace;


I could trance the soil away
See The kingdom of the grey
Appear now and then
Gossamer threads that trace.

Inspired after reading a chapter of Underland by Robert Macfarlane this morning .
