462. Color, like features, follow the changes of the emotions. ~Pablo Picasso

Have you heard summer shout?
Well it is and has been here;
And its voice is red hot and full of fire.

Red.
Red is a fading sunset on the horizon.
It’s a burst of flame;
A spray of the fire leaping towards us.
It’s the heat of the warm afternoon.
It’s a flickering flame of a tiny candle.
It’s the spark able to spread the wildfire of love.
Red is reverent, and it’s holy.
Red is the color of heat.
It’s full of passion.
It’s bold.
Red has the brawn of an ox,
The skill of a pride of lions,
And even the diligence of a colony of fire ants.
It does not back down or grow weary.
Red stands his ground firmly.
It’s charming and romantic.
Red is like a harvest of fresh raspberries:
Satisfyingly and deliciously juicy.
Red is optimistic.
Red is the color of a rising dawn
that glides across the morning sky and through the misty white clouds.
It’s the hot August sun, beating down on your entire body,
and filling you with warmth.
~Edited and adapted poem by Sunny Summers

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ~Ephesians 3:16-19  ✝

    • Did you happen to notice the name of the woman who wrote the poem? Sunny Summers! How ironic is that! Yes, Picasso just had to be the guy that introducted this one today. It really started out fairly nice early on but the heat sure came on strong after that. I’ll be sooooooooo glad when the first crisp, cool day arrives. Hugs and love to you too, my little Cookster.

  1. Red is fervent. I have come to appreciate so many colors, but ever since I was a little girl red has been my favorite color. I really enjoyed this poem and the picture of the lantana. I was thinking about planting some in one of my shrub beds in the front yard.

    Thank you for sharing this post.

    blessings,
    Theresa
