Love is Red (a cinquain in two parts)

red-rose-side

A poem distilled from an earlier prose piece, The Red Beast

love is
fire engine red
if it makes you happy
i will do it, dulcinea
for you

love says
i surrender
to all of your desires
your smile is my dearest reward
for you

  1. I had to think about the second part. Wow, that is some kind of love.

    So much feeling in just a few words.

    !!!!!!!!!!
