Red Against Green

​Red against green

You stood out right from the start
Bright in a place so dim

Red against green
I saw you first because of the fleeting bird
That sought life from your sweet nectar

Red against green
Blooming on an ordinary tree
Your mere presence and growth a decoration

Red against green
Swaying softly with the rhythm of the wind
Oh such a beauty

Red against green
For your beauty
You are in danger

Red against green
Plucked and taken away from home to your own demise
You become an attraction even for your own destruction

Red against green
Still you give
To the birds, to the open eyes and hearts

Red against green
Bringing joy to the world
Oh what a perfect creation
