Daily Haiku: Fluttering Red

In this daily haiku, “Fluttering Red.”

Some believe that the red cardinal is a messenger from the past to the present. The opening of doorways, the melodious chirp, one can’t ignore, the fiery red one can’t miss in its sighting, for me, I have a love of all GOD’S creatures and their beautiful song of life. A daily haiku and digital art piece to enhance the perspective of red and life.

|Fluttering Red|
A daily haiku poetry.

“Red is the color of extremes. It’s the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces – and most of red’s symbolism today arises from its powerful associations in the past.

Red is also a magical and religious color. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the color of the Christian crucifixion. Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days – a fact that may explain its magic and power. Paradoxically, today’s intense red dyes come from crushed insects (the lac beetle and the cochineal).” – The Meanings of Red
