daily healing concoction:
one hibiscus tea bag, 1 teaspoon new mexico honey,
and one tiny spoonful plum concentrate.
deep magenta, golden liquid, nearly black tar-like potion.
the ear portal, only the beginning of listening.
music felt through the pores.
pinons, junipers, and elms speaking as feet touch earth of soft-bedding like pine needles.
gathering information, receiving the earth and all she is.
