Herbal Inspirations


What's inspiring me this week....

the yellow explosions across the land
the tiny baby leaves
the flowers that arrive before the leaves,
like coltsfoot
and forsythia

Bitters, barks, and beauty

Sweet and fresh smells,
that heal the skin and spirit
white sage
blue chamomile,
bulgarian lavender

and service
offered in pretty bottles

Women taking good care of themselves
taking longer walks in the cattails,
daughters romping in the fields
bringing home feathers

Poetry, naps, and journals.
frogs. eagles. herons.
