Paint the Town Red – 100 Days of Summer

I am taking part in the Project 100 Days of Summer 2012. In the words of the organizers:

“100 Days of Summer provides its members with the opportunity to share their creative work within the intense framework of providing one artistic submission per day for 100 days. Officially, we are beginning on July 5th and expect the program to run through October 15th or so.”

Steve Veilleux provides the prompts using “cards from a game called ‘The Origin of Expressions’. ” He encourages us to use the information in any way we like, “borrow ideas from other postings, or create literal or abstract interpretation of the expression”.

Expression #1 follows (week of July 1-7):
Paint the town red
Meaning: Spend a wild night out
Expression #2 (week of Jul 1-7)
“out like a light”
Meaning: Fast asleep

So, here we go! We Paint the Town Red! I will be posting mainly haiku/senryu and micropoems with the occasional photo haiku and photographs.
