proslogion fungi : toadstool patterns : and chiaroscuro : colorful mushrooms : depend on the dark damp places, they are low and their beauty is frought with uncomfortableness and danger : some of them are poison : they suddenly emerge from the cracks and somehow push through the top layer of mulching soil with what appears to be great effort : they are emblematic of proslogion on these many levels, the lowness, the bowl and the water flowing downward : but nothing better actually depicts the layers : layers of process, the spores, patterns, poking up : at once countering and complimenting the process of fermentation that the layers of mulching soil slowly undergo : a contrast which evidences the creative fermentation of the soil : long and toilsome giving birth to pattern and form : contemplations of the woodland floor
