Showcasing our first Poet

May I introduce Susie Bertie of Nebraska!

mid-summer

Wrap me in chamomile tender ….
twining & tender as a secret golden sunrise
ringed in yolk-yellow & palest green
wrapped
turned to sun white-brilliant-hot
soak
me
in
rainwater
collected by the cupped hands of
stars & musicians .
soak me
as your eyes turn to the needs of strawberries
childish & pink in their surprising innocence
there …. there alongside the lavender
ahhh … smell ….
timeless & storied amongst cracked terra cotta
and
clay soil
saged & thymed
to the rhythms of summer ….
bend
water
tender
release ……
wrap me in chamomile
