For Mia Joubert Botha ~ 12 Poems In 12 Months ~ To Grace Sacred Blood ~

poem red rose

Form : Haiku






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.
