Ode to Mold

Ode to Mold

Honor to thee, godly mold,
Whose dharmic lineage, grandly old,
Extends to Earth-life's birthing time:
Namaste, resplendent slime!

Ancestral prototypic form of life—
Foaming ferment, boiling strife:
Bacteria revolved, swirled and evolved,
Establishing in that seething ancient stew
The processes from which Earth-life grew.

Fungi and related unicellular kin
Digest what's dead and bring back in
Else-lost life-stuff to the biotic tapestry:
Fundamental living-process drivers,
Soil-rebuilders, life-recyclers—
Honor to thee!
