Red

(Image Source: http://hdw.eweb4.com)


if heart wasn't red
I would paint it happily
with colors you sing

cars screech
no time to speed
green turns red

red turns green
move on those gears
accelerate

long red nails
silently caresses skin
stars unite

some stars fall
shatter dreams of glass
red blue black

red marching ahead
six soldiers follow suit
that's a rainbow

swirling red
through thick thorns
rose blooms


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Red.

  3. I like the image of falling stars shattering dreams--sad, but lovely nonetheless.

  4. swirling red
    through thick thorns
    rose blooms

    This one speaks of the season slowly unfolding. Of loveliness that has to go through difficulty before achieving its purpose.

  5. Each alone takes me to red, some screeching and some caressing. Together it is quite a ride!
