Scarlet Elfcup




… always, always nested in the brown detritus, amongst dead leaves…

 the leftovers of fading autumn…

… blood red and vivid…

… like fresh, very fresh blobs of blood upon the ground…


… around year-end… this fungi thrives

where deer pad and foxes skulk

pheasants forage and blackbirds patter

.. then winter turns and it all begins again…
