Poem from The Color Series: Orange


Orange is rising, setting, burning. 
Much like the blessed sun it glows, 
With energy, beauty and warmth. 

It's spice and autumn; bright yet deep. 
The flamelike veil of Aurora, 
And fertile flowering of life. 

A collection of opposites, 
Both warning and bold desire; 
Such physical and subtle heat. 

Orange is nature's transformation. 
The realm of gold, everlasting, 
Captured by red and yellow leaves.
