    Ah – we both presented different sides of red. I do think it is true that color is synced with mind and soul….color comes from our depths, says something about a person.

    Oh Sanaa, I really feel like singing it…’color me Red’ indeed…of course ‘Color is synced with mind and soul’….bracketed words are simply brilliant…I also played with ‘red’ today….

    Brilliant! Heart or Head? Color has always had symbolic power. I remember in the movie Gone With the Wind when all the widows dress in black but Scarlet defiantly put on red–of course that was her name–but she was saying Let There Be Life. At that point she still had innocence, not cynicism, but she didn’t really know herself. I want to be able to defy untimely death. “Color me red.”

    Really like how you play with these words. Red stands out and often doesn’t play well with others. When it does, it brings a sense of exuberance that touches everything around it.

    Red is a passionate color so a lady in red or to color up in embarrassment is usually associate with feelings of love and desire, one flaunted the other badly hidden. It was fun to see the two words offered with the initial letter bracketed off. It is good to read experimental poetry like this to play with the reader.

  22. Pleasant Street says:

    I always liked red because it is a symbol of both evil and love. Nice parenthetical work so we have to work a little at the meanings.

  28. Red is my favorite color as well, so color me red too. Your use of form & line breaks, spacing, & bracketed words give it even more dimensions; color is married to emotion, the light spectrum becomes a universal link for all of us. When I see bracketed words, it is always fascinating. I keep looking at the words within the brackets, hoping to find another line, another message reading just them; but no such luck.

    Interesting how different people react differently to the same colour, Sanaa. The parenthetical device defeated me on the first read, I’ll have to go back and re-read it now…
