#340 Haiku Serenade In Red


Red velvet sunset
Serenades earth and sky
An opera in red



Ribbons of color
Harmonize across sky
Red velvet sunset

    This one links together nicely the sun, earth and sky. “Serenades” is a good choice of words evoking the coming of evening and the beginning of a love story portrayed via opera, although operas are usually stories with complicated plots of love affairs, in which case the “red” could be a hint of this. “Red velvet” can be two colors implying motion, change, or things evolving. Altogether a closely knit, beautiful picture. Much more to this poem than I first realized.

    This poem plays with my eyes and imagination once again including a sense of motion with ribbons moving (harmonizing) . (Report) Reply
