2017 Poetry Marathon, Hour Ten: Red

Tenth poem of the day.

It was a small spot of red
on a canvas dominated by blue and black
a lone point of humanity
amongst two armies
without faces or names

One small spot
to represent the blood
of millions lost

A young woman walked by
stirred by the breeze
the ladybug flew away
