Old Vein New Blood

These eyes search for beginnings
Endings of chapters to close
Old veins know devoted restitution
Born from new seed seeking
And
Old Lineages of ‘Her and Him’

I am the old vein – Unrepentant
I am the new blood – Uncorrupted
I am in ALL
Beginning
Middle
End

Weariness does not weary me
for the blood in the vein
surges with the nutrition of love
a life that is
Dreamt for
Called for
Existing in the veins of NOW

A collaborative with our darling " Linaji ":http://www.redbubble.com/people/linaji for her wonderful photo ‘Old Veins’

Feelings and words fall on to the page
Sometimes they bite back
Sometimes they tug on our sleeve
Sometimes they have a cheeky grin
They stay once a page has found them
Words are faithful to us even in the dark
