Red

Field of yellow tulips with one red tulip. Mt. Vernon. Washington

Field of yellow tulips with one red tulip. Mt. Vernon. Washington

One single red flower

adorns my desk.

Such a bright splash

of color: passion,

action, it signifies.

Its beautifully

formed.

4 petals together

are forging a

path upward,

one petal at a

distinct right

angle ventures off

in a different

direction.

Sort of like a thumb

on a hand.

Don’t care which

way they go;

I like the color.
