Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme

Garden guardian,

Stand over the silver sage.

Thyme, nullify time.

Chocolate, Beer, and Bookstalls

TV on I hear of chocolates and go about my business.
Then a question:
Which of the 300 Belgium beers will you try?
I answer the travel documentarian -
And reeling me in from my lack of attention,
I am caught on the line:
Every other shop a book stall.
My wanderlust unleashed,
I want, want, want, want, want
Chocolate, beer, and book stalls.

Feed the Awe

The hunger of a wolf cub is fed
Through the pads of her paws
And satiated mile on mile
Ley line on line of butterflies
And other curiosities.

The wonder of a child is awed
By a clear night of stars
And the howling in the wilderness
Stirring up restless fears
At a safe distance.
