Blue to Red, Past to Present

Red from blue,

Blood--the secrets of lives lived

Are always
in blood.


Your blood,

My blood.

Everything to be known
Is in blood.

Past, present, future--

Must search for them--
 in blood.

I may have been watching
too many CSI or Science
documentaries.
However, it also sets up
a novel I am writing, Scent of Sage.

  2. You write so well, Susan. I was wondering when you would dip your pen into the sea of published authors. I know it will be a bloody good book.

  7. I am used to having my book lust triggered here in the blogosphere, but lust for a book not yet complete? New to me, but very real.
