tiger lilies, proud
cacophony of orange
can’t hide green stems
Thank you! There is a story to this one I am winding into a larger poem.
I agree with David. Looking forward to reading the larger poem. 🙂
Thanks, C. Just finished it!
I like how this twists across the senses with the sound orange makes..
Oh, Alice. Write that poem. you need to.
I’ll work on it in the morning when quiet returns.
🙂 I know what you mean.
Tiger lilies are wildly, gloriously orange and do create a welcome cacophony in the garden. Thanks for reminding me summer is around the corner!
WS, thank you! I can’t wait for the snow to go away…
Your use of color to convey the prompt is as brilliant as the orange.
Oh goodness, thank you!
Well done! I always wanted to use “orange” in a poem… 😉
😉 note this one doesn’t rhyme…
Green will show up !!!
Yes, it will!
Oooooh, cacophony, a fave word 🙂
Wonderful word, I agree 😉
I love the way in so few words you made me picture a sea full of orange. Nicely done
Thanks, Audra. Now I am feeling waves of orange, to go with that sea.
and green– doh comment got cut off.
oooooh, I hate that!
I enjoyed the idea of presenting the colors as being in caciohony..really nice 🙂

Oh, thank you, Sarjana!
I need a bit more of this on the cusp of more (8-14) snow.
Oh, I know. March did NOT get the memo that spring is coming.
very visual, very dramatic ! loved it 🙂
Thank you, Prema.
I would love to hear the larger version, It has piqued my interest.
Thank you! It is the next piece– “more on Orange Lilies”
