“Remember, Red……Hope is a good thing……Maybe the best of things….And no good thing ever dies.”
-Andy speaking to Red in the film Shawshank Redemption
Above is a photo of the characters Andy and Red in a scene from the film Shawshank Redemption (one of my favorites). The film is based on a novella by Stephen King called Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. With this film in mind, below is my take on this week’s Haiku Heights prompt, Red.
Red and Andy, trapped wise men,
imagined by King.

NOTE: I changed “strange” to “trapped” because I felt trapped was a better description of the characters of the story.
