RedRed is the blood of life flowing through veins;Red2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Red is the petals of a lover’s rose.
Red is the stripes looping ‘round candy canes;
Red is the polish painted on my toes.
Red is the crab apple eaten by deer;
Red is the velvet of Christmas stockings.
Red is the lantern welcoming new year;
Red is the plumage of cardinal wings.
Red is the blossoms waving from the tree;
Red is the brick wall protecting my home.
Red is the sunrise saluting the sea;
Red is the faded ink on the worn tome.
Red is the color of life, love, and war,
And yet red symbolizes so much more.
A Snowy Winter's SonnetA Snowy Winter's Sonnet3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Snowflakes slowly fell onto frozen ground
As the scenery turned into pure white
And snow decorated the scene without sound
Transforming land into a winter sight
Rooftops decked with glistening ice crystals
As wind blew, sending snow flying in air
Morning arrived with the sound of bird calls
As little kids rushed down stairs without care
Just to go outside to play in the snow
Sledding down the hill, building large snowman,
Having snowball fights outside in the cold
Adults shoveled snow and kids gave them a hand
For winter is here, let's give out a cheer
Enjoy the snow for now, for spring is near
