In the Margins – Poem #3

| In the Margins – Poem #3 – From the pages of Mary Windermere’s Book of Healing Plants (unpublished). -M.J. Heinrich |


Ginger is healing…

The feeling of heat

Heart aligned coherently

To respect those we meet.

There is danger in rage:

From exclusion and lies,

The gatekeeper and cage;

Incoherent petty hate,

And the “Just wait…”

Weight.

Wait — weight?

Till beauty and strength fade?

Till that original voice is erased?

Yet there is danger in the rage.

Who guides you, to free you-

From those who clutch and fake you?

Now this is the hour of the Sage.
