the scent of motherhood

 

The name “fenugreek” or foenum-graecum is from Latin for “Greek hay”. The plant’s similarity to wild clover has likely spawned its Swedish name, “bockhornsklöver” as well as in German – “Bockshornklee” , literally meaning ‘ram’s horn clover’.

it is not yet certain which wild strain of the genus Trigonella gave rise to the domesticated fenugreek but believe it was brought into cultivation in the Near East. Charred fenugreek seeds have been recovered from Tell Halal, Iraq, as well as desiccated seeds from the tomb of Tutankhamen.

Many women who take fenugreek in the quantities required notice that their skin exudes a distinct “maple syrup” odor.

it’s just temporary

i keep telling myself.

i remember

storms

And I did not deal with you I know
Though the love has always been
So I search to find an answer there
So I can truly win

So I try to say
Goodbye my friend
I’d like to leave you with something warm
But never have I been a blue calm sea
I have always been a storm

We were frail
She said,
“Every night he will break your heart”
I should have known from the first
I’d be the broken hearted
But I loved you from the start

(and one more)
