A strong medicine stands close by.
On the riverbank, its favored home.
Another quiet gift close at hand.
At the center of a summer hillside.
Solitary fronds on a spring-fed slope.
A delicate, fruitful carpet on the forest floor.
Feathery foliage and a slight pink tinge.
Abundance to come.
The beauty belies the effect.
A ladder of leaves, tipped with stars.
