30 shades of red

St Callan's cemetery, Rogart (3)Red is a rare colour in graveyards.

The shade of life, blood, pain and hate.

Graveyards have none of that.

They are grey or black, they are death and decay. Grave.

And still, there are spots of red if one cares to look closely.

Light feathery red, deep heavy red, alarmingly radiant red.

Red is a final, violent colour and a sign of hope.

Love is the only thing that conquers death.

And love is red.
