Red is the smell of strawberries

And the feeling of surprise,

Red is the scent in the earthy soil

And the blood flowing behind our eyes.

Our first main chakra is called the root

Associated with the colour red,

It’s our foundation to life

Which highlights all the fears we’ve fed.

Red is the vitality

That keeps us alive,

The strength of our instincts

Embedded, in the stop signs.

Red is our connection to Earth

Connecting Earths iron core to the iron in our blood,

It’s our survival in life and the question of

Whether we should.

Red is the aroma of cinnamon

And the taste of the juicy pomegranate seeds,

It holds the essence of Christmas

As the colour associates with sugary greed.

Red is the colour of addiction

And life’s temptations.

The feeling of pain and agony

From boiling inflammations.

Red is an alertness

That gives us fight,

It’s the first colour we see as child

And the last to leave our sight.

Red is the colour of healing

With infrared gifted by the Sun,

It’s an ability activated by our hands

When there’s healing to be done.

Red is there to ground us

Our instinctual guide

It’s one of the Suns three primary colours

And with these three, every colour is supplied.

    A delightful piece that caused a stir of emotions with every single word. It almost seemed to convey the form of an abstract poem:)
