"There exists no heaven and no hell, nothing to look forward to after we have gone to ashes; live every moment NOW, and make things happen the way you want to in this lifetime; not the next."

Vermillion, those tell-tale streaks the sun
leaves behind as he sets into the oceans,
Ruby, the underwater fire flickering
from the cold depths of a gemstone.
Crimson, the wrenching teardrops shed
by that mighty yet destroyed heart;
Carmine, the rich fiery hue of the elegant
Indian dress in which she exchanged vows.
Garnet, the tantalising glow of
apples laden on the trees in the fields,
Venetian, the fiery locks of her hair with
which the wind plays a game of toss.
Magenta, the most delicate blush that
creeps up her unsuspecting cheeks;
Scarlet, grandeur of her draperies, that
cast a warm glow over all her winters.
We live not in a monochromatic world,
Our lives, like our words, they're shaded-
To every sight, there exists an unknown view
and to every uttered word there's
present an unwhispered wish-
So the strawberries are not red,
neither is your blood or my heart-
They are shaded, like nature's own way
of adding mystery to monotony.

The author's comments:
It just hit me, that it's very easy to overlook the intricate detail that makes up our lives - but it's the presence of such detail that makes our lives a desirable one to lead.
Think about it :)
