missing the orange bulb

missing the orange bulb

A Poem by charlotte

i wanted to write a poem around the colour orange and it came to mind that orange can be quite a rare colour to see, when the sun is not there. it's really about missing the bright sun

when the summer is silent and over 
and the spring a few months gone
few oranges do i see
beyond my closed and shut window
the sun is silent
unable to show it's face 
and i wish autumn, cold winter
the sun would come into play anyway 
perhaps gaining some extra strength 
finding itself heating on up 
but cooling down in the freezing lake we call the sky 

I just want to see a circle of orange
floating right on out 
orange, so simply sparse
so few of those colours to see
i know that the sun is really a yellow 
but when it strikes so brightly
surely it could nearly be an orange too 
striking and burning up into 
fierce and fiery orange hued flames of heat 

and oh, i do miss the heat playing out in the sky
on the cold winter days 
for it's the only gold bulb i truly ever get to see
i mean, there are orange flowers
though it depends where you are
as to if you will see a orange petaled stem
maybe we will miss them on our walks out and about 
and on those cold and grey wintry days 

where is the orange when we need a light
true, we can find it inside
should we have a log fire to keep our hearts and feet warm 
but those who don't
we just want the orange and fiery sun 
to play out fiercly outside of our windows
but sadly, we just have to see dull blue
a hazy grey and a cold freezing night
