Blazing rose
 
A citrus sweet of delectables, delighting each sense
 
Passions, anew
 
Not like passions red, of boldness deep and cranberry nectared—plush, as velvet skins touch; soft
 
‘Tis a fire’s passion—hot carbuncles of a summer’s ignited flame
 
Like tangled hearts burning an atomic tangerine
 
A tea rose—delicate fire
 
A titian, coral bloom
 
A peachy, caramelized sunset
 
A simmering orange and petrified glow, wild with tinges of apricots and honey
 
Petals spread wide open
 
A vibrancy of elan zest
 
A fervently bustling, flaming burst
 
The bronze lighting
 
‘Tis a boundless passion
 
Blazing rose

Written June 2nd, 2018. We consider the red rose to be the ultimate flower of passion. What about orange roses?

Such passion in this Blazing Rose!
“Petals spread wide open...’Tis a boundless passion”. I feel the Titian in me, alive again!
