Interpreting Red Roofs, Marc Chagall, 1954 paintings

Red Roofs, Marc Chagall, 1954

'Oh! my world
is drenched in red'
cried the tall man 

From his sheer cry
and trembling body 
I understood that he owns the place
He said he created it 

'Can't you see the pain bestowed'
he called for his wife ,the mighty sun
'Look at our children '
he cried again.

She had already warned them
Many times.....

Then in a flash , he gazed at me 
with his eyebrows curled in question

The bouquet in my hand
and my broken heart
must have answered him

Like him , I too have come 
in search of My World
My Love...
