Setting sun 1

Setting sun

Splash of burgundy paan-spit
and the paterfamilias nodding off

pink  filial freeness
silhouetted against a crimson feel- flare
(or was it orange flair or even purple fair)

symbiotic exchanges
slapstick sequences

elfin  hemlines and tarty décolletages
catching agoraphobic impulses

    From your "paan-spit" I'm guessing you're Indian, Jag (lol). I've always wanted to experience an Indian sunset. I believe it's a sight to remember forever. Hey, good luck in the contest with this gem. Fingers crossed. Licia :-)

    Hi Jag :) LOVE this! There is a playfulness here and it has so much atmosphere. I especially liked that it feels somehow not quite complete, but, for me, this is the beauty of it. I am not satisfied because it was so good, so I read it three times. Best wishes in the contest. Oh, lol, I just wrote a poem about art and actually mentioned setting suns, not realizing there was a contest about it!
