Jan's Crimson

Thank you Jan...

This piece was inspired by Jan Mader who challenges writers to write. This is what I came up with for the challenge of the color red...


Beautiful marigolds dancing in my mind
Reminders of you
Of love

Swirling thoughtlessly...
Remembering crimson's sunlight
That sat so warmly in the hands
Of a bellowing ember in the bitter cold of winter

You fall into my mind on a day that
Recalls love to my heart
Like the rose that sits in solitude
Withering away
Crimson's light shines in to water my soul
