~ Orange ~

~ Orange ~

Orange, the world cremates
Evening's play
For life's
Seasons
Weakening the eye of day
'tis there
Tomorrow will die
In sunset's crypt
Crouched in the cloudy canopy
OfΒ  its hazy
Complexion,
Every spirit upon the Earth
Sweetly recognizing
The inevitable crash
Of yellow's decay,
Into,
Orange,
Where the ripened rinds
Fulfill acquiescence
And the twisted sundress
That adorns
The goddesses
Drapes
Across suntanned shoulders
So lightly
So easily
Wearing every virtue
Which glows red,
Not unlike seeds sprouting apples
Whose orchard,
In its rows of planned sustenance
Ultimately provides
The diapason
Of perfect rainbows
In melodious
Colors,
Melting,
Deep,
Into the harmoniousness
Of sunset's voice,
WhereΒ the heart of it
Bleeds,
Orange......

My Dear Brother Poet Tony,
Your brilliant words sink deeply into my Soul, inspiring this reply.

The Sky's silent singing sunset
Erupts in a concordium of color
Each one, a metaphor of life
The culmination of it's brilliance
"Orange"
The core of it's very so

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx

Breath taking colors described in black and white. True artistry my friend, a great mastery of the language. To be read and reread.Tony were I a wearer of hats I would tip it to you, but a tug of the forelock will have to do. Well done sire, well done indeed.
