Red Lanterns


It was once said in Asian culture,
that lanterns light the way
to luck and happiness, in red.
They float above our heads,
lighting the way through the conservatory,
flowers take away our breaths.

    1. I do too. :) It was on a whim/by accident too. We went to Longwood tonight for their Christmas display. Pictures later!

  2. Not all Asia has the red lantern symbolic festival thingerm. Russia and India spring to mind, first.

    I'm just a little grumpy that "Asian" generally means in common parlance "Chinese, Japanese, Korean" - Asia is kind of bigger than just those!

    Then again, I haven't slept well last night and probably should just get more rest. Извините.
