Thursday Inspiration 57 — rise to color

on

Tree swing at sunset

From watery shadow’s limbo
Burning embered love does rise
To glow on spirit’s tippy toes
Monochromatic suffocation
Flooded with oxygenated hues
Then sighing, recede, and rest.

 

Paula Light is the host of Thursday Inspiration.  Paula says:
This week’s theme is sunset and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Sunrise Sunset,” a song written in 1964 by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock for Fiddler on the Roof.


Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

    I like “Flooded with oxygenated hues” Lisa… That picture is really cool. Looks like it came off an early 70s poster.

      Thanks Max. The pic is done by Paula, the person who gives the prompts. She does some pretty pictures with that app!
