Scarlet Sighs of Sunrise


Her orchid blooms in petals across the vast expanse bridging realms from here to there spilling her wine and soaking the sphere of giving light with impassioned shades of royal birth as drowsy constellations daydream She presents pious plumes of plum pastels in a gesture of generous grandeur for cosmic kings and queens and mere mortal beings with golden eyes behind heather veils of ethereal ecstasy Susan Ashley February 16, 2018 ------------------------------ ~ Ninth Place ~ Contest: March 2018 Premiere Sponsor: Brian Strand ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ First Place ~ Contest: Sunrise and Sunset Sponsor: Silent One (first picture)
