Herbs & spices – heal craft & foretaste


The Eight


A foretaste of

Bitter sage

Lancelot plantain

Sweet root & hollyhock

Thyme preserved

A covenant unspoken

Unseen primrose, summer forgone

Stinging nettle, seed of fennel, anise

Plucked unplanted

Felt sensation, encapsulated

Bequest of forefathers

Never besmirched, dubbed forgiven

A miss a hit a fold a step a stumble

Never conspicuous, bare blood

A foretaste of aurora
