Reflecting on Red


Red was the colour
of the morning sun
as we walked along the dike


Red was the colour
(okay reddish)
of pealing paint on a dike post


Leaves turned red overnight


Berries shone red
in that morning sun
all ready for any hungry critters
or perhaps Rusty pups to pick


Then later on back at the ranch
I returned to grey


Goosey, goosey gander


Reflecting red in his eye!

  1. I love the energy and power of red. No other color stands out and makes a statement as red does in a neutral background.

    Have a perfectly wonderful weekend.

  3. Love the 'goosey gander'! I'm not drawn to red but at this time of the year with green EVERYWHERE a hint of red popping up in the Cardinal flowers is very welcome.

  4. Don't tell me Autumn's coming already! Love those various red, though, even if they do make me feel as though the year is speeding up!

    1. Deb...Those berries are probably alder berries or something similar that grows in the wild around here.
