The Alchemist

The Alchemist



~The Alchemist~

Below a patch of moonlight
Rests sheets of scribbled words
A bundle of Earth’s trinkets
Wild remedies and herbs

A row of glowing candles
Anoint her sacred realm
Infused with woven potions
And treasuries of spells

With loving hands and purpose
She masters Alchemy
Her honey-laden bounties
Will reap frugality

She stirs enchanted cauldrons
And smoulders herbal knots
With ancient, buried secrets
And words that time forgot

A weaver of the old ways
A priestess of her craft
Destined to yield her wisdom
To those who walk her path
