What comes to mind upon hearing the word ‘orange'?
Besides the fruit.
I guess, the sunrise in Africa.
A cartoon scene from ‘The Lion King'.
But I've seen it for real in England.
Why, only today, I saw in the sky,
Defying the clouds, a thick vibrant line.
A bold, ... striking colour.
Imprinted onto a screen in my mind.
In this country of varying greys.
But other than that, what can I say?
I have noted its dominance in fire,
rather than red with which it's associated.
And I see it daily
In the amber of the traffic light.
I think I underestimate the colour.
That's why I've not got much to say.
