Orange sheen

Sun spread its orange sheen

Flowers blossomed into beauty unseen

Time and harsh rays faded it out

Filtering out only shadows

Tall, dark and ominous

From dawn it’s almost dusk

Feet are still on the go

Ignoring the thorns,

Trying to inhale the imaginary musk

Intermittent mirages of spring

Played hide and seek

Leaving the heart weak

Then again Sun spread its orange sheen

Only to disappear into depths unseen….
