Herbiary I: Vervain

Let Magic In

Enchantmentó
 worlds unseen;

your pale, lilac face
 upon slender, spiked bodice
bare of leaves

Gateway to the in-between
 liminal spacesó
magical mystery. . .

channeling medicine
  of absentee herbs
within the healer's garden

Delicate as a sip of brew;
 but, beware! vertigo of the soul
if one drinks the cup whole
