Monday WRites 230

[in today's mosaic The Red House Port of Spain Trinidad reopened after renovations 24th January 2020]

Stone walls red, when folks go wild, blush under the sun opposite age old trees.

Stone walls, crumble to embers when, wild of riots cinder and reduce gravel to flames.

Stone walls, rise the phoenix of endurance, after rage takes it toll, Ever Red
