翳 means 'to cover'(?), does it mean veiled red in the compound word 翳红? I couldn't find any reference in dictionaries thank you, rosa
By the cliffs, I overlook a tide that comes and goes
and leave my memory stranded there. At noon
behind the window the air fabricates tranquillity
the petals are impeccable, their delicate
fragrance scattered over the stitching
floating, rushing down to my goustrous heart
Light and shadow play around the rocks. Further out
seagulls break from each other, fluttering
by my grit some are lost at the edge of dreams
though others return. The ridge seems to dishearten
it lies aslant like the rests in a temporal cadence
with care the sun slides from crimson to straw
i would suggest "dull red", or "red with a low saturation".
because, 翳 has a meaning of "to shade"
imaging something that's underneath a tree on a sunny day, that it's color would be less bright, less clear; compare to others in direct sunlight.
