Orange

Hawaiian sunsets -
my freckled legs wade through it
whiffs of a beach-fire
take me back to childhood days
close 'nough to warm, but not scorch



For Andrea's TANKA me a COLOR contest.

    I like that you took the color orange. In fact I think orange can be extremely pretty during the sunset. I loved the descriptiveness. Felt like I was practically there! Wish you the best in the contest!!

    You should really see my collection of orange clothing... it's a bit ridiculous actually... LOL! Thanks as always for being a fan and your creative and kind comments!

    I'm not going to try and analyse this Tim, at least not yet. It does bring back fond memories of beach parties though, and I appreciate the constant shifting required between being warm and being scorched. Good luck in the contest. Take care, Richard

    You as well! I'm curious to see if anyone else takes on the color orange...

    Orange is lost on me because I can't see it. I do however relate to the beach and campfire imagery.

    It isn't the most well liked color... but I wish you could see it! Thanks for reading...

    Daringly you use a color not initially found on the artist's pallet. It takes a blend of two prime colors to produce. My choice of green carries the same destiny. I wish you well with your magnificent creativity. Great job... Jake

    Plus you can't find any words to rhyme with orange (except for sporange... but in what practical sense can you throw that word in?). Thanks for stopping by John!

    I don't believe that I've seen another Orange poem for the contest! You were daring to go with the color orange, very ingenious descriptions within this write! I truly loved reading this delightful and amazing piece, Great Work!!

    Thanks Russell. It's a difficult color to write about, but it has always been my favorite... you have no idea just HOW many bright orange tee-shirts (as well as bright orange pants for that matter) that I use to own.
