Level-Headed Red

They say red is hot-headed
fiery and volatile.

On the contrary, hers
is the longest wavelength,

her frequency of peaks and troughs
is, of all colors, least.

She is calm, even-keeled,
slow to trough, slow to peak.

  1. I like your reds! Mine somehow turned a bit green :)

  2. *love*
    Those photos are so great. I tell you, I have one of those redheads. I don’t know if “hot-headed” describes him either. Maybe more…walks to the beat of a different drummer. :)

  3. Cool poem. Like the photos, too.

  4. Way to play along here, Monica.

  6. mmmm – this is lovely, and your images nearly sing! I really like the way you’ve given red a personality, one she has already, but you like her when you’re done, really, really like her!
