Red


Red,
What is Red?
is it the soft embarrassed blush
or is it
the deep dark blush on your cheeks when you see him
or when your happy

The Mother of pink
A color of a beautiful rose
love in the sweet soft song it whispers
An angery person
or war and the blood that is shed and bled
because of it

I could and would go on and on
forever naming the sound of the
soft and threatening color of Red
or the sweet blush on your face
or the bitter taste of blood in my mouth
after seeing the anger Red has left behind
But would it do me good
when you can find it yourself can find it in
an expression, emotion, and all around you

What does Red whisper to you?
What does Red mean to you?

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
