tonic place

thimble berry
pocket stones
daylight tale
and tweedle tones
cedar aisle
birch tree maids
nearby creek
to gurgle praise
flute and string
a granite chair
lupine waltz
in open air
conceive a day
of leaf and lace
a wild tender
tonic place.


We wake, if ever at all, to mystery. – Annie Dillard
