saffron and ash.

September 1, 2011

Summer amber with indigo sky,
but always over where she lie,
a billow of grey because I cry,
and just can’t seem to say goodbye.

    With four short lines you paint a very clear picture – I got a complete image while reading the first time. The second time I challenged myself to picture something different. Both times you painted something sad but beautiful.

    The first line is lovely – I love the juxtaposition of amber and indigo. Glorious. Now, I want a skirt featuring those colors!

  4. Your first line is so beautiful and just keep going on after this what a wonderful poem happy picnic
