Glowing Gleaming Orange

Fire sparks, dragon scales, Lucy's hair If I were limited to seeing and wearing one color it would be orange Bright vivid neon orange in paisleys or polka dots Not the orange of tabbies, but the glowing gleaming orange of the most vivid leaf you have ever hoped to see Orange dazzles my eyes out. If I could find orange underwear In my size 9's, I would run around lifting up my gypsy skirt Orange in my jewelry, orange in my shoes. Orange, orange, orange! Sure, you say. She is probably lying. Come see my house. It is done up in Oranges, yellows and pinks, and if I had to lose two Of these colors, sorry yellow and pink, but you would have to go I want fire engines to be orange. I want stop signs to be orange I want the whole wold to be the color of prancing, angry hot flames Orange I say. Orange I yell! Orange I am. Prancy, dancy, orange.

Thank you P.S. I am such an orange lover, I have no idea what I would do if I turned a corner in my home and did not see at least six orange things.

I love orange; it is my go-to-color. I am always on the look out for an ORANGE office chair. I have another bright orange chair for there was no way I could leave her in a store by herself.

Thank you my friend. I am writing color poems this week for I have noticed, being an artist, they are simply EASY for me. They jump around the page and moon me and we all laugh.
