Aeons ago Sol wept embers into space,
Down his flaring beard,
Such tears that spewed like fireworks ,
Of vibrant variants of voracious reds.
There was the intoxicating Merlot – the strong red of wine,
The holy Garnet – the sturdy red of the Earth,
Sangria the profane – the red of warfare and bloodshed,
Seething Candy – the molten lava red,
Darting Scarlet – the sanguine and nostalgic red,
And finally Delphic Mahogany – the Dark one that resides unseen at the core.
Together they forged the sphere of hot,vital gravitation – Mars,
The Red Orb of Aggressiveness and Naivete.
His aura so hellish that his terrain boils pots of blood-like fluids
As if to announce the very embodiment of the Roman God!
…….The whale was awestruck by the first tale
As he swam by.
