Describing one of the primary paints...
Red is the brightness of cherries
Tart on the tongue,
Glossy and smooth.
It is the sweetness of strawberries
Picked fresh from the field.
It is the merriness of Christmas
Wrapped up in bowes.
Yet a passion also stirs
Hot and vibrant
Sensual and pliant.
Fiery depths can be reached
As tempers are stirred and unleashed
Blood can be spilled
Worlds can be caught
And flung into chaos.
Visions of hate are as ripe
As the visions of love
The two sit side by side
Polar opposites...
but the common thread is
The depth of emotion
That is brought to light
With the intrinsic powers of a brilliant red.
