Calligrapher and illuminator Jan Turner of Kent, England, e-mailed me to ask for permission to use my poem, "Toadstools," for a project. She had found it in Decomposition: An Anthology of Fungi-Inspired Poetry, edited by Roehl & Chadwick, from Lost Horse Press. (Yes, I know -- the perfect themed collection for me.) This serendipitous art-poetry intersection/collaboration is one of the thrilling benefits of the Internet. Here's her beautiful finished piece, which includes her "spore print." Thanks, Jan.
