Scarlet roses rising in the garden The shade of crimson blood As it drains away A flame's maroon hue, Blazing with determination
Crimson Gate (Version 1 and 2)
For today, I have two slightly different versions of the same poem! The first version is a haiku, while the second is a tanka poem. As such, they are of differing length, and phrases/words have been added and rearranged in each poem. However, I wrote both based on the same theme and ideas.
