Red

“red the color of the rose
red the color of your lips
red the color of your tongue….
red the color of your heart……
red the color of your passion…..”
― Marina G. Roussou

As you drip through my fingers
like a naked truth
and I hide you,
behind all the shameful veils
like a proverbial truth 
you exist
and flows in my veins;
you carry the life inside
while the giants boasts of mortality;
you are a sign of courage in the war
adorning a victory scar
turning into a grandiose reality;
A sign of new beginnings
for a blushing bride
a sign of novelty;
You give the reason 
for celebrations
with the harvest reaped 
so grandly;
you are always 
deemed
a sign of prosperity;
you are a sign of pubescence
with the nod 
opens up the door,
to the new realms
for the little girl
turning into a woman
oh! so gently;
defines the beauty of the 
rose
shaping its effervescent beauty;
assign the royalty
to the royals
with every thread
in the tapestry;
a salutation by the setting sun
spreading the love
passionately;
hinting the passion 
in those blushed cheeks
you define love radiantly;
You, the color “red”
is the mighty color 
in all the spectrum
I believe.
