Bitter Wine

The wine tastes bitter sometimes.

Like the dandelion, though,

It will help you grow.

Sip a little, make the squinty sour-face if you must,

Let it digest.

Watch, listen to the seed

become

the heart of the matter.

Sip again. It’s a little smoother this time, eh?

Sip, swallow, sing

The sweet wisdom of the bitter wine.
