MY SACRED BLOOD

My blood
My deep red flowing blood
Flowing in joyous delight
Through the caverns and crevices
Of my life
My good red blood
Racing in anticipation
Of things yet to be revealed
Full of curiosity
Feeling no restraint
Innocent of dangers
Powerful beyond my knowing….yet…..

My good red blood
My hot red blood
Wishing to be seen
Sticky on my thighs
What is this new wonder
My blood
My deep red blood
Turning brown
On my slim white skirt
Time of revelation
Time of consternation
For this good red blood
Singing like a river of celebration
Through my now woman veins
My blood
My good red hot Maiden blood
Called back to the Earth
Running down my legs
Leaving little red pools
On the fresh mown grass

    Thank you. I am loving the croning process and appreciate your wise words on the deepening of our blood at this time in life.

I just had a thought-vampire stories involve a woman falling in love with a competent, but dangerous, man.  Dracula came out in 1897, when the women's movement was strong, soon to result in women's suffrage.   Vampire stories often involve a woman giving up her independence and competency to be with a man.  She's hypnotized, can't look away, and he by turn, wants her lifeblood-that which keeps her alive and functioning.   Is this a perspective on the rights of women?  Is it possible that there is fear that a man will take a woman's right to live away from her? If not by force, than by stealth?  That even so, a woman's nature isn't strong enough to resist?  Are vampire stories in general just reinforcements of patristic ideas?
