Orange Red Sky

Bound to look at the orange red sky
Orange red heaven,as if on fire
See the sun chasing the moon away
Clouds..forming faces and odd creatures

Staring down into a quiet creek
Silence in the calm water
Faces staring back at me
Movements,like small waves
Creates faces with different looks

From behind the waterfall
Imagine music..`fantastico` melodies
Showered with cold, drifting water
Like a conductor leading the orchestra

Borned to seek and run
Another stage, another performer
With heart strings tuned like a twelve-string
Strumming like a cascade of tuned emotions

Moonlight shadows creates fantasy products
The mood is set, off to seek and live
Yet again, at the break of dawn
Powered by the sun,a new sky lifts and creates a new horizon

    You sure painted this picture with a lovely ending, with the sun touching the edge of a new day of skin... "Arlid...this is a gentle and warm moment to share with us. ... even with the sun, taking from you with its new and everyday new form. This one moment makes it feel at home ((your image))... " Arlid, I like the way you created a vivid cascade of running emotions in my mind with all the wonderful and breath taking words in your poem, Well done! I'm eager to read what else happens after the horizon of red orange and red takes place... ""thank you for leaving a blissful thought, of passionate fire with fever" "...nice. and very pleasant & satisfying for sure... always~ PD..."
