Ethic of Blood

Hee! I just had an article and poem published in Witch Eye #13. I came across the Witcheye Yahoo group a month or so ago, and Storm was asking for submissions with a deadline that weekend. I cranked out two poems on Friday, and then told him I could do an article on Monday. As always, I am drawn to ethical matters like the proverbial moth; hence, I explored the idea of one particular ethic of a Faerie bloodline.

I was shocked when I looked up the role of iron in human blood to see a diagram of the heme molecule in which the Fe atom is at the center of a cross of four N's. I immediately thought of our circle casting and the role of the priestess in relation to the seven directions. What fun.

Hi, Jim,

Neither I nor Witcheye have those two poems up yet. I usually don't get around to updateing my poetry site (http://pages.sbcglobal.net/sschulz/) when I've got a good sized batch of new poems. If you're interested in Pagan poetry in particular, you can go to http://pages.sbcglobal.net/sschulz/ipagan.htm which has that has links to my previous 145 Pagan themed poems. My major pieces are probably http://pages.sbcglobal.net/sschulz/sol1.htm, http://pages.sbcglobal.net/sschulz/gk21.htm, and http://pages.sbcglobal.net/sschulz/pl22.htm .

Also, a fan-based, Pandora message board has opened at http://pandora-forum.com/index.php. Do join us there, if you like to talk about Pandora.
