Haiku for fairy rings

Grow wild are encouraging a love of fungus through poetry this month. Mark Grist performs his here. This seemed like another suitable act of wild for 30 days.

Fungi perform vital roles in our world breaking down organic matter. But this useful recycling skill didn’t fill me with inspiration. So I’m sticking with fairy folklore. 

Fairy rings are rings of mushrooms that occur naturally. But there are many tales of folklore of these rings appearing as good and evil omens. Here is my haiku to fairy rings.

Joyous the elves dance

Create their fairy portals

Door to unknown worlds
