A Medical Herbalist pitches her potions to the owner.
I’m gorping at her wares in a basket,
Close to the floor.
Contains Essential oils
Of eucalyptus, thyme and lavandin.
I cough. We talk. what do you recommend?
How much? I’ll think about it.
Oh! Thinking. I’ve just been given some money.
Pausing she says, This is my gift to you.
And take a bag of these herbs as well.
May I introduce my husband. And my son too.
Yep, I met her (and family) at the Health Food Store.
That would be over a week ago.
O! the kindness of strangers.
Thanks to Pat, the Medical Herbalist. I’m coughing better!
