Magenta Be The Mood...

haiku reflections

satin silk velvet
luxuriant feel and hue
folds of magenta.

Magenta is a deep purplish-red color that is a primary subtractive color for light. Sometimes identified as fuchsia or hot pink, magenta is a mixture of red and blue/violet wavelengths that cannot be generated by a single wavelength of light.

Magenta dye was discovered in 1859 — the same year as the Battle of Magenta. The dye, also known as fuchsine, was named in memory of the blood shed during the battle between French and Austrian forces in the small Italian city.

Blood representing the red ray of life force itself, violet representing the ray of spirit, the quest for realization, the summit of liberation and freedom... and so the magenta, the blood and spirit in accord.

This the ray of integration ... all above all below.. 
the red of the root, the violet of the spirit, the ONE in manifestation.
