100-Day Project 42-47

days 42-47

Red is the thunder in our ears
when we meet.
Love, like creation,
is some other order of things.


This life in the fire, I love it.
I want it,
this life.

–from “The History of Red” by Linda Hogan

One of the bonuses of my grid project has been finding new poets when I’m searching for an appropriate poem for the color group.  Linda Hogan is a Native American essayist, novelist, poet, and environmental activist.  Her writing considers the reciprocal relationship between humans and other living things and the places they share.  “The History of Red” is a fierce poem, with the intensity that red brings to the other colors it touches. The passion of those last lines…wow.  You can read the entire poem here:  http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/244366
