Roig (Red)

Red is an imaginary carpet
dancing with desire,
lettering the days
with roses and birdwings.
Red is the sky
that turns the morning
into an omen, the night
into a full moon–
catching dreams
like a wayfaring balloon
painting the town with stars.

The NaPoWriMo prompt today is to write a poem that delves into the meaning of your first or last name. Roig means red in Catalan.

    1. Its a very common name in Puerto Rico, where some of our relatives were supposedly from, although I’ve found no written record of it. But I’ve not heard it as a first name. Why not? It has a nice sound to it. (K)
