SuziCate's Musings

About SuziCate

You are reading about Susan Payne, aka SuziCate.

Basically, I write because I must. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I write in search of something not visible to the eye. I rely on human experience as subject and draw on emotional depth. I am just a feeler of feelings and a weaver of words. Simply, I live from the inside out. The bottom line is that I think way too much! My other blog is That is where I post about my daily musings of life. Posts about my fiber arts life can be found at The Renegade Stitcher.

The Water Witch’s Daughter

The Man flows
With the pull of gravity
His daughter gravitates
From the pull of the flow

Vein of life
Piercing like a dart
Through the palm of her hand

Vein of life
Pounding his soul
As he walks the land

He divines for streams
Beneath grass, stone, trees, hardened clay

She divines for dreams
Lost in the night and carried into day

Earth – flesh
Rock – bone
Water – blood
Where did she begin?
Where was she to end?

The river runs through her family blood
The river runs through her
The river runs
