|Red Roofs, Marc Chagall, 1954|
If I could rise above
red with the blood of history
If I could dance on
stained with tears
If I could walk in
casting shadows on our memories
I would still bring flowers
to lay on the graves.

What a wonderful interpretation of the image...history speaks to me so often. I dream of changing some things in my own history, but I must lay flowers on the graves of my mistakes.
touching...i like to walk among the graves...and even when we rise above we should remember...
Beautiful and powerful
Ah, perhaps you can... this write suggests you can. Love it.
Nice and evocative.
Some places just have a history that slaps you in the face.
'if I could' ... great Mag, Mouse!
Very poignant. Love the red blood of history, streets stained with tears, and the shadows of memory......this poem really struck my heart, especially the flowers on the graves.....
Ah... memories works wonderfully here!
Colourfully poignant. A bunch of red red roses came to mind....x

Well said, indeed.
