Treasure Island

Alice Vedral Rivera

(Chicago, Illinois, USA)

*Blood Red Roses

Blood red
The roses she'd
Always received
Blood red

Blood red
The sole chroma
Of her world
Blood red

Blood red
Spurted out from
His thorn-like barbs
Blood red

Blood red
Her anguished life
Blood red

Blood red
Her favorite
Shade of roses
Blood red

    If he hit her with words, she bleeds blood red internally.
    If he hit her with fists, she bleeds blood red externally,
    And when enough blood is shed,
    He brings her his 'Sorry, ' or 'Love, ' and blood red roses.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
