A Spot of Red- (Originally written May 1st, 2012)

In a sea of Dark Gray

a sea of nothing

There is

                           A spot of Red

A bushel of flowers-

A pick up truck-

A pot of roses-

But still-

                                   A spot of Red;

A spot of Heart

A spot of Love

A spot of Courage

and A spot of Hope

In the sea of the dead

One brave soul

Dared to paint-

A bright

bold

biting,

Shot-

Spot-

Dot-

Of Red.
