    Red. A character...a larrikin a supportive friend and a bloody good poet. I wonder who the person behind the name is? 'If One Day I Could Spend The Night' is a work of art and I love all the beauty I find in it every time I visit.

and breathing that faint and lovely
fragrance of your hair.
And we could dine on pizza and red wine,
in the softly glowing firelight,
one day, perhaps, if I could spend the night.

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night,
there would be nothing hurried,
no urgency in either life,
and we could have another glass of ...
