Lichen lounge

Lichen lounge

Lichens lounge
on limbs like
groovy 1970’s
pea green
shag carpeting,
softly tickling
surreal trees
which
toss
& turn
over our
strangely
lucid
dreams.

    Totally dig this poem.

    • Thank you for re-blogging my poem and photo! Your kind words are much appreciated! You seem like a kindred spirit who shares a love of Nature and great music. My dad owned every Beatles record and I grew up listening to their transcendent tunes. In fact, I had my cousin and his wife play an instrumental rendition of “In my life” at my wedding. Keep up the inspired work on your blog! I look forward to following you and hope you have a groovy day 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

        Thanks for the kind words! Sometimes I wonder if my obsession is a bit too obsessive, then a song plays, and I’m carried away by it. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit to my blog, and hope you check back soon.

    Ah that shag carpet !

    • Although I am a 1980’s child, my parents had a penchant for orange and pea green shag upholstery! Old habits die hard I guess, the cones of my retinas blinded by poor taste 😉
      Cheers,

    wonderful photography

  4. I like this! The neighborhood where I grew up had some moss like that hanging in the trees. And I do remember green shap carpet! The 70’s were great. I think I miss them now.

    • Thank you! I’m an 1980’s child, so I am envious of anyone who grew up in the decades preceding me. Disco balls, bell bottoms, roller derbies, Saturday Night Fever, man did I miss the bus on those years. What do I have to show for my generation? Reruns of hit TV shows, mind-numbing 80’s retro vibes and celebrity suicides. I’d rather commune with my forest friends. Moss and lichens can’t remember faces, just places they have shagged 😉
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    Nature is a tad behind the times. Fortunately, lichens can’t clash because they’re in a symbiotic relationship (dry biology humor). Just imagine fungus and algae wearing pea green scarves to complement their chemistry. This marriage was meant to be no matter their place in history or a tree!
