red roses

What is Red?
My dear master, explain red to somebody who has never known red'
'If we touched it with the tip of a finger, it would feel like something between iron and copper.
If we took it into our palm, it would burn. If we tasted it, it would be full-bodied, like salted meat.
If we took it between our lips, it would fill our mouths. If we smelled it, itd have the scent of a horse.
If it were a flower, it would smell like a daisy, not a red rose.'

So says Orhan Puket in his book' I AM RED'
