The Prompt 128: Red

In a moment of anger,
through a haze of scarlet,
I see destruction born
of fire and obsession and blood
and I feel remorse.

In a moment of strength,
through a cloud of crimson,
I see power born
of fear and courage and loss
and I feel humbled.

In a moment of excitement,
through a veil of rose,
I see romance born
of heat and excitement and love
and I feel brave.

  1. Red is such an emotive colour and I think you’ve captured many shades of feeling here. I love the structure and the depth of feeling conveyed.
