“The Universe said, ‘Let me show your soul something beautiful.”  Aberjhani, Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love

My Amparo dresses in black and white, as
I used to, “like a nun” said Consortia, then
One night I saw moonlight smiling over deep
Wood, birch bark shredding in papery layers
And witch’s broom growing in tall white pine
I heard whimpering rills, frogs and crickets,
Saw hummingbirds, a purple-throated carib
Sipping nectar from blooms in Dominica
I heard a lion roaring in Africa, learned of
An Italian and his espresso and a sweet
Brazilian girl who fell In love by the Amazon
All this I began celebrating in red, dancing in red,
Sleeping in red, making my tea and toast in red,
Living with a capital “L” on bare feet and clad in
A lively red silk dress with slits on each side

    Another Classic Poem from A True Poetry Champion

    After You- An Attempt on Red

    Neolithic hunters,
    found power of life in red
    Romans loved war Ares

    Anemone turned red
    as Adonis died, lost the white
    to grace, sacred blood.

    War weapons painted
    Erik the red, found Greenland
    penguins bears captured

    Rebellion is red
    rosy red is for love and beauty
    making red, evil doing.

    Be a bride, wear red
    gift red eggs to first born child
    avoid red affairs wild.
