Red: summer's favorite color


Red is summer's favorite color.

Cherries. Berries. Tractors.

New red running shoes.

Roses.

The combs on the hens that cluck indignantly when I gather their eggs.

Red lips. Watermelon. Sunsets over the water.

Sparklers- the kind we light on the Fourth and the kind that go off in your heart when you kiss the one you love. Especially as the years go by, and the fireworks only grow stronger.

Red is the color of summer.

What joy!
