Flush?

heat
in the
face rises – blood
courage, passion and sin;
scarlet

scarlet
flower, foretells the weather,
emotional storms though

…scarlet and other bright shades of red are the colors most associated with courage,
force, passion, heat, and joy..[and] also often associated with immorality and sin.
… An early recorded use of scarlet as a color name in the English language dates to 1250.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anagallis_arvensis = scarlet pimpernel
or poor man’s weatherglass, from its habit of closing its flowers in dull weather.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the

    curious, perhaps, how you randomly chose this particular inspiration 😉

    wonderful information here – and of course, the piece – well done …..

    Flushed
    Royal hand
    Dealt by whose deceit
    Feel the heat
    Creeping up
    Face burning in shame
    Crimson clover
    Purple – red
    No rest for the dead
    Stealing starlight
    In the night
    Until the sky
    Is Extinguished

    sorry …. got carried away in the heat of the moment … wishing for pain relief as the snow falls lightly … to lie in the cold to break the bones shattered the barometric pressure a b*st*rd ….

    ugh …. 😉
