Part of Me

Summer rain
Sassafras tea
A freshly snapped green bean

It’s sprinkling
Now raining
A storm is coming
Quick, get inside

Buttered biscuits
A skeleton of fish bones
Draped across my plate

Lightening bugs
A too close hummingbird
Sent chills down my back

Contrails whisked strangers
Across my sacred sky

I was there
Then gone
In a contrail of my own
Close my eyes, I’m back again

  1. I have never had sassafras tea, and don’t think I want to try it, even though I don’t know what it is. But the writing was delightful, and full of imagery.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Pete, as children, we used sassafras tea as ‘witches brew’ for our Halloween parties. You had to drink a bit of the tea to gain admittance. Unsweetened it is less that palatable in my opinion! I am glad you could connect with the imagery.
