Red Is... Alphabe Thursday, Rainbow Colors, Red, July 29, 2010
Well, we finally made it through the alphabet in Miss Matlock's classroom and it was great fun. I think we all did very well and we learned a great deal from each other. I thought we'd get a break but, oh, no, not with our teacher. She has us right back in the classroom, doing colors now. When will we get any play time in this summer??
This week is the color red. I am not sure what to write about red. I think I'm just going to
go through my picture files and try to find some red pictures. Some of these you may have
seen before in my blogs.
This delicious Dungeness garlic crab was dinner one night at San Francisco's Crustacean Restaurant. My son Jeremy and I both had one and there was nothing left on the plate when we were done but a pile of shells. It was absolutely delicious.

Red winter berries
the color of fiery flames,
of rageful anger full of disdain..
of passionate lovers sipping champagne.
the color of chilis that blister one's tongue,
a sexy lipstick that make us feel young,
the wildest of lyrics that haven't been sung.
a feeling of power that goes to one's head,
the violence of warfare that leaves thousands dead,
the hundreds of battlefields where soldiers have bled.
a sign of emergency and a need to take care,
one should go cautiously if there is a red flare,
is often a sign that one should beware.
the color of love and celebration,
it can be a source of stimulation,
and can liven up any presentation!
