Touch of Red


Above a haze of blue,
A sphere of silver brightens a star-scattered sky
But hidden within the canopy of lights
Lies a lone red star. Similar yet totally different to all the rest.
A beacon of individuality... or perhaps a warning of a possible future?

    You hid that one well TL…Tiny, but it’s there. Given the climate of the world today I would say it’s a warning as red is usually portrayed as aggressive or war like…Then again, perhaps it speaks to our hearts which red could be the fire of love. Hard to know but I do know we all need to open our hearts up and begin to walk with love not hatred or we are doomed….VK 🙂

      We do need to open up more, VK, I agree.
      Regarding the red star, it was an afterthought to add it, but helped with the post’s creation! 😊

      But at least by then, we’ll have passed the time
      Which, you never know, could be sublime!

      I think of all those ancient stars
      I’d mostly like to visit Mars
      and there I’d sit with ladysighs
      and ponder upon different skies

        But when you go, just spare a thought
        To the folk on Earth, and their havoc brought!

        If pondering is all you’re pitching
        I’ll soon be you a ditching
        To someone new I’ll be switching

          Oh ladysighs you’re unforgiving
          I thought you’d transport me to heaven
          Up on the Milky Way we’d be living
          With our offspring three, four, five, six, seven

            Ah, Ceayr, I think you blew it…
            But now, I’ll leave you both to it! 🤣

    A warning or maybe a vision?

      Or perhaps merely a guiding light…?

    Star light, star bright
    may I wish upon a star tonight
    Oh, tiny red star
    Please show the way
    for all to have better days
