Now that we have completed the Alphabe-Thursday meme from A-Z, Ms. Jenny has summer school in session. We will be addressing the colors of the rainbow (Roy B. Giv, anyone?) The first lesson is all about the color RED. I am certain there will be several fascinating posts on the topic (as there were with the letters of the alphabet).
I hope Ms. Jenny doesn't mind but I attempted to do something a little different with the initial assignment. I decided to write an essay in which the word RED is imbedded throughout other words within the story. I don't know if it will be successful or not but it made for an interesting experiment.
It is as if I am in the predawn shadows of a giant redwood.
I hide seeking redemption through prose.
By doing so, I have altered my life’s path
by redefining who I am,
for I have rediscovered the heart of that child within.
My soul is no longer captured by predatory beasts.
Tattered memories, dredged from a life long forgotten,
may have angered me in the past
but can harm me no more.
I have embraced that lost child.
I have showered her with the love and attention she deserved,
allowing her to be enraptured by God’s tender mercy.
Dawn breaks in hues of purple, red and orange;
a colorful banner heralding the
incredible journey about to commence.
The shadows shall fade as I step into the dawn of a new day.
