A strong physical reaction to an emotional process.
Feverish, blood is boiling. Sanguineous, the skin blushes.
Blood rushing through our veins, like underground rivers. Like in a spring flood the blood passes through the skin.
The sky blushes.
Blush will speak also the glamorous aspects of the body.
