Orange - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

A carrot
Blazing her path
In the arms of winter
As a lonely snowman
Respires with a carrot stick
…………………
King coconuts
In their wild bunches
By the street side
Quenching the thirst
Of travelers braving the midday sun
……………………..
A photographer captures
The eloping frame of a Vietnamese girl
Naked to her jaundiced skin
Scampering away from the clutches
Of the legacy of herbicides and defoliants
……………………….
In the midst of such tales
Of mirth and melancholy
Of mutants and mutations
Lies the bold tone of a color
The essence of Orange
