scarlet stains on morning marmalade.
Sweet sangria signs,
amber flames licking the evening sky.
Golden Tuscan sun,
dandelion fire on a bright afternoon.
Biscotti blonde beacons,
porcelain stars staining the night.
arctic Aegean shades on a gentle setting sun.
Sharp azure stones,
cobalt slate waves disrupting the night.
Marigold’s mind, ebony eyes.
Lilac lips, honey heart.
Fog, flint, flame.
