Why Red?

Out of the rainbow of colors, why is my favorite red?
Lots of reasons could be said,
But there's one that rises above the spread.

Red's the color of the blood that Christ shed
From his nail-pierced hands and feet he bled
And from the thorns pricking his head

Giving me life when I was dead.



This poem is part of my April Poetry Challenge. In honor of National Poetry Month this year, I'm writing lots of poetry and posting a new poem every day in April! Read more of my poetry here.
