Message from Writer

"Words gather desire inside your head
Gathering emotions, gathering feeling, gathering
Meaning, gaining a purpose other than being
Becoming something other than words, other than
Thoughts ricocheting through my mind breaking through to the
Outside, darting to others, creating a spark in their hearts
My words just start in my
Head but never end there

The Red Cloth of the Sky

April 29, 2021


Red is the cloth the bright sky chose to wear,
As Sun flees the realm and Moon is received,
The color of gemstones, rubies so rare,
And a heart mended, but soon still aggrieved,
Flowers and fruits Nature warily shares,
And sickly sticky blood from its veins sieved,
Beware voracious flames that run amok,
Yet the hue of adventure, life, and luck.

This too is an Ottava Rima (see footnotes on The Lilac Canopy) I wrote this just for my mom!

    Wow! I love the description too. I think my favorite line is the first one, 'Red is the cloth the bright sky chose to wear.' Good job!
