Excerpt Tuesday – Forest – Jean Garrigue

Scoelicolor2

Today’s excerpt is from Jean Garrigue’s richly descriptive poem “Forest” – you can read the whole poem here. I couldn’t resist pairing this poem with another microbial photograph by Dr. Jenna Eun. When fed on different food sources, the S. coelicolor bacteria will make different secondary metabolites and turn different colors (compare to last week’s photograph where it is jet black). Enjoy! Photograph by Dr. Jenna Eun, composition by me.
