Becoming: An Herbalist's Reflection.
being an herbalist is an act of becoming.
becoming aware, expansive, pulsating
becoming emotional about the rain, the roots, the flowers, the oceans
becoming passionate about our ancestors, our forgotten knowledge
becoming steadfast in our desire to commune, share and experience
becoming our forgotten Self
A Self who has become many times before and rejoices in becoming anew.
In sensing the patterns of the body & mind
I am called by the individual flowers
effortlessly they call into experience
that which our Soul needs most.
It's a funny thing to talk to plants
in images and emotion.
Acquaintances become Soul companions
in instant moments of revelation.
