Dawn of a Red Orb


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.
