winter’s blush

Red keeps finding me. Or I keep finding it, I’m not sure which.

In general, I’m a cool color lover, but suddenly, the color of
life keeps moving through my line of vision.

Perhaps it’s a sign. Perhaps it’s because, so far this winter, I feel
invigorated rather than sluggish, I feel content rather than restless,
I feel open rather than closed.

I am quiet. Listening. Absorbing. Inhaling.

Holding my breath for one split second
before releasing it back out into the world.

Red is my armor. Red is my amour.

I’m not sure which.

I’m not sure it matters.

I am loving the color in my cheeks.


Wishing you a Monday filled with color.
