My Love Affair With Orange

Orange is my utmost best color, my best friend, my girl.
She laughs from the rooftop, and she makes me mouth curl.
She glitters and she shines, her happy feelings for me.
Today I may take out my paints and paint an orange tree.

Most of my women cartoon paintings are ginger heads.
They come into my mind before I get out of bed.
I look around the bedroom and I laugh and I sing.
My many red-haired paintings, it makes my mind truly zing.

I have a paisley orange shirt and an orange evening gown.
Some people want my autograph, and mob me in town.
I do not dare wear either of them on my shiniest day.
I would be so manic, the mental police would cart me away.

Such a delightful poem, it made me smile widely, Caren! Orange is a vivacious color for sure. Getting mental bracelets is a belly blast. Lol! An artfully expressed poem, dear friend. Love and more love always.

I love ORANGE. I think this summer I shall paint every room orange, and the carpets too.

And with that...excuse me...I must take time to relax on my porcelain throne; laughed too hard. Will "fav" when I get back.

I like the idea of the last time, envisioning it often and me shrieking with wild insane laughter.

I adore it; I do believe it is my utmost favorite all time color, pattern, stripe, swirl, polkadot and plaid. Add pink and yellow and green and Wowsa! Magic!
