after “Reflected Afterglow II” by Wolf Kahn

Vibrant colors streak across the sky’s canvas
They seem to mingle with each other
We too consist of many shades/colors
Each one painted by strokes from the Creator’s brush
How well do we blend with each other
The fact remains –  Red is the blood that flows within all our hearts
