For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


I offer you
an orange,
a globe of sun,
to sustain you
through the noonday heat.

Savour its perfume
and eat its flesh
given to you in innocence
representing my love.

    Hi Sally,

    Such a wonderful and simple gesture taken in and absorbed by whomever you love... the sustenance for the day, to hold it up to the sky and know that the warmth in your heart shadows that of the heat of the sun. Loving the whole orange theme, from the fragrance to the sticky sweet texture to the flavour. Nice expressed and written.

    Dale :)
