624. When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment. ~Georgia O’Keeffe

I found I could say things with color
and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way –
things I had no words for.

What is orange?

Orange is a tiger lily,
A carrot,
A feather from a parrot.

A flame,
The wildest color
You can name.

Orange is a happy day
Saying good-bye in a sunset
That shocks the sky.

Orange is brave
Orange is bold
It’s bittersweet and marigold.

Orange is zip
Orange is dash
The brightest stripe in a Roman sash.

Orange is an orange
Also a mango
Orange is the music of a tango.

Orange is the fur
Of the fiery fox
The brightest crayon in the box.

And in the fall
When leaves are turning
Orange is the smell of a bonfire burning.
~Mary O’Neill

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. ~2 Timothy 1:6   ✝

    • Thanks, Gigi. I found out that Holly over at Heartafire loved the color orange so I thought I’d create a post about that color, and it seems I did it for you too. I’m so glad. Finding a decent poem about orange was a real challenge, but I liked this one. I hope you have a lovely orangeness kind of week. Hugs, N ❤

    • Oh, I’m so glad you thought so. I really set out in search of things to write this one after I found out you love the color orange. It turns out that Gigi at Rethinking Life loves it too. So apparently I gave both of you a treat, and I love doing things like that. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
