The auburn hours of fall(ing)

the taste of your breath stings
from this great chasm
like a near fall rain
teasing softly on my clavicle
like fingers reaching
secret desperados
abducting my air flow

invisible to a dark tangerine
and titian spill

i watch the leaves wind down
like umbrellas chasing a
bluegrass terrain
and i feel you
in this autumn air
near me

you are like the orange fire
in octobers flames
falling from a far off sky
onto my lip
i can lick the feel of your skin
taste only rain

i feel you
whispering like a brisk edge
to my cheekbones
and my lashes
in a silent dawn of amber
and i tumble
to the naked crush of fall
and your burning eyes

    My gypsy woman,
    I’m completely in love with this piece

    So incredibly rich, you’ve created a sublime prism of oranges…and I do believe orange and its variations are symbolic for happiness.


  • aw thank you darling :) I’m so happy you liked it :))
