Blood As Fertilizer


anecdotal stories
Blood is a rare fertilizer. They tell me that the bit of ground over in Belgium called Waterloo bears each spring a crop of rare blue forget-me-nots. That bit of ground had very unusual gardening. Ploughed up by cannon and gunshot, sown deep with men’s lives, “worked” ever so thoroughly by toiling, struggling feet, moistened with the gentle rain of dying tears, and soaked with red life, it now yields its yearly harvest of beauty.

For it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. – Leviticus 17:14
