Pokeweed Inktober Pen and Ink Drawing

Pokeweed Inktober Pen and Ink Drawing


The first time I saw this plant I initially mistook it for elderberry – a dangerous mistake since pokeweed can be very poisonous unless you know how to prepare it correctly.

Many medicinal herbs are like this. They can be poisonous unless they’re prepared properly. I apply this often to our own hearts and minds. Sometimes sadness, sorrow, and pain can be our greatest teachers. The things that are most poisonous to us reveal the most about ourselves and our situations, and in that way, the poison becomes the medicine.
