Fungi and Honeycomb


in his mushroom cap
he stored wisdom
collected from far and near

this faery man
stood with ease
and compassion
one of wisdom's gift

  8. Nature and wisdom. The mushroom and honeycomb are great ideas. He looks mystical to me, like a character in Rushdie's Enchantress of Florence.

  37. I love working with dip pens, although they can be quite messy.I once lucked out and found a large set of antique nibs and holders which I treasure.
    Your shading is looking quite good. Mushroom cap, indeed!
