New to Va, new to mushroom hunting! I came in too late last year, but being on here gets me so excited! I have never tasted a Morel. Hoping to find something this year. If anyone is near the Augusta Co area and willing to have a partner, I would LOVE to learn the tricks. I will be going out just walking in the next day or so and probably this weekend.
I hunted Merkels the day my Momma died
Took up bag and stick then hit my stride
To a deep dark holler I strolled without much sleep
For mine had been a vigil set to keep
Thru the night I held her hand
Hoping to see God’s grand plan
Before the dawn she slipped away
The moon had set on her last day
Now with my bag and stick I trudge on again
Tired feet on springs new land
No blacks or greys were there spied
Looking thru my reddened eyes.
I see the Blood Root flower born anew
Reminded me of a life imbued
With love, wisdom, kindness and grace
Now in all flowers I see your face
