Her Name is Red (Poetry)

Inspired by a Creative Commons stock photo taken by Xram Nagali

“Her Name is Red”


Her name is Red
Not short for Mildred
Or even Winnifred
It’s just Red

Not sure why
What wisdom
Had her parents
To name her Red

But she is beautiful
And her hair is red
Her favorite color
Even is cherry red

Her soft green eyes
Full of wonder
Daydreaming away
As I snap her photo

Oh Red you inspire
So much desire
What are you dreaming?
Can I go there with you?
