The Ugly Side of Red

Miz Quickly  Reds  Image here

Red, bright red, unadulterated
red is extravagant, outrageous, energetic,
the color of roses, blood, hatred,
anger, stop signs, danger, jealousy,
the wrong side of the ledger.
Red is not subtle, soft, comforting,
it is not love but passion, lust, abuse,
need, greed. Red is not namby-pamby,
uncertain, introverted, meek, it is…
Fortissimo! Red is a blush, embarrassment,
mortification. Red is fire, the sun’s core,
and mostly what you wear.

    I like the way you just went all out for the color without directly referencing the content of either of the images. This flowed along so energetically and was fun to read.

    Yep, ‘Red is not namby-pamby,’
    I agree with Barb too. Fun read.
