The Journey and Her IV

by Stephanie Alfaia

Red as the color

In a box reflecting the 
A child’s little fingers 
Selects red to fill in borders
Of hearts 
Red as the color
For passion, for love
Moments of intensity
Other meanings forgotten 
Red as the color
For life, through fire
Creating heat for survival 
Red as the color 
For anger, and rage
Seeing nothing but red 
And what of red 
As the color of death
Blood dripping as life
Slips away
How do you draw death?
