Red Barns In Winter

Updated on January 18, 2014

Red Barns In Winter

.

Winter’s colors are removed,

And lacking the slightest array

Greens are swapped for brown and rust.

The sky is often grey.

.

So often winter needs a lift,

Lest our winter should seem duller.

Give your shed a coat of red instead,

We'll relish this vibrant color.

.

When the world seems saturated,

With shades of black and white,

When spirits need lighter hues,

A red barn is a serendipitous delight.

.

      Beautiful poetry again, Micky. l have often felt that Winter is too grey, so l tend to have a bright red winter coat, or Bright blue. Everyone seems to be in black or grey.

      Love the red barn. Love you .
