Blessed are the pure in heart and blessed are the peacemakers...St Matthew 5 : 8-9

I felt blessed to find this heart-shaped mushroom on our walking trail...I went back to the house to get the camera as thought it most unusual! Oddly the next day when I went back to the same spot wanting to take another picture...The mushroom had completely vanished...The rest of the plain mushrooms that I saw had not been touched but the heart shaped specimen was gone... I love finding symbolic things like this in nature as what I wish for more than anything else in life is peace on earth! I think it is interesting that you can see the word heart inside the word earth.

This speckled mushroom
Is not food to eat
For us to consume....
Nor does it beat
The message sweet,
Found in nature's art,
That has good worth,
When we see a heart
Making peace on earth!
Poetry by me AJP

    Gorgeous shape and colours! I've noticed that some mushrooms around here turn black overnight and into a mere shell of their former selves. You caught this one just in the nick of time and it's a real beauty.
