Orange

Carpe Diem Time Machine #1, orange


orange fire ball
burns through the tree silhouettes 
autumn day break



amongst all the brown
orange against garden wall
poison ivy




tangerine sky
melts in the breeze
autumn evening

  3. Tangerine is such a good synonym for orange.. I wrote some triolets on the same theme once... https://brudberg.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/our-tangerine-of-ends-travel-triolets-for-dverse/

  4. yes, those colours really seem to melt into each other. I much prefer tangerine and apricot shades of orange. A bit easier on the eye and softer somehow.

  5. Beautiful, Dolores! I love that orange fireball -- one of my favorite sights along the roadway -- seeing the sinking sun burning through bare tree limbs. And the poison ivy is so beautiful!

  9. All are beautiful, but seems that "tangerine sky" seduced all of us. Wonderful!

  10. As I started this new feature I was really anxious to see how tgis would evolve ... but as I read your haiku (all three gorgeous) than I really know that it was a great idea to bring old prompts again ... nice triplet of haiku Dolores, your third is a shining star

  11. Beautiful. We were in the Florida Keys last week and in one of the Hammocks (forests) there was a poison ivy tree. I had a bad case one year - so I stay away from that plant. But I can see all your photos at my place. The only difference is the sun is caught by the trees at sunset.

    Best to you and yours this New Year.
