red

.

Red is the colour of my home –

It is the rocks and soil that support me,

It is blood coursing through my veins,

Sap rising in the tree from the rich moist earth,

The colour of iron and oxygen mixed.

.

Red is the colour of my life –

My hands as they dig,

My feet as I walk,

My lips as I smile,

My tongue as I taste the sunset.

.

Red is the colour of warmth –

It is joy and love around me,

It is generosity and anger at injustice,

It is the feeling inside my eyes as I dream,

The pulsing heartbeat within your flesh…

.

Red is the colour of my life.
