An Acrostic Sonnet inspired by United Colours Yellow Poetry Contest of Silent One: Orange, which is not such a favored hue, Rarely decorates hills, streams or plains. Does orange matter? Well, in road work lanes, It paints the bright cones guiding cars on through! Not very much else does that color do! As a terrorist alert, it’s made gains. Really bright, it highlights, but makes bad stains. Yet I love Cheetos, which are orange too! Ordinary yes, but it's the new black! Red and yellow birthed it; that‘s quite grand. Autumn and Halloween gives it glory days. Not to mention also this: we can’t lack Getting its one vitamin named C, and Evenings are best when it sets skies ablaze!

Greetings, Andrea. Congratulations on your first place in Silent One contest. I love your Acrostic. You have described all the things that the color orange is used for and the benefits we get from it like vitamin C and blazed sunsets! Thank you for your kind comment. Enjoy your evening. Hugs, Andrew.

Stopping by once more to say congrats, Andrea! I think you went above and beyond with combining the multiple forms, while containing a lot of humorous references. I'm surprised that I haven't a read an orange poem yet that mentions those orange and white cream-sicles! MMmm...
