For I have tried to rearrange the sun
My soul is burning cherry red
For this wrong that I have done

    Trying to rearrange sun is very amazing in this sharing definitely. Keeping hand s in fire and burning soul in to cherry red is very wise in imagery. Wise and wonderful sharing...10 (Report) Reply
