Rarities perched upon a rooftop
Chance caught in Fortune Bay
Hanging by my feet over an afternoon
A moment earned upon cedar shingles
Magic in macro, lipstick on life
A sage forest, a bright fairyland.”
What wonders grow in places we never think to look. Hanging off the railing of a 100 year-old turreted inn, I spied the most marvelous lichen/moss growing and blooming upon the dying cedar shingles that, as we sat, were being replaced across the the roofs of the Prince Edward Island inn.
