July oranges
raging wild orange
Cote d’Ivoire
national flag orange white green
orange taxis, soccer outfits
Abidjan music
orange fun
bling and dances
fresh squeezed juices daily
oranges and passion fruit
bowls of cut sweet mangos
hot nights
orange crush
striped lingerēe
orange passion

road work, orange signs
Kaaawa oranges
blush of dawn
and brilliant sunset in clouds indirect
orange butterflies
orange shorts from Clary
orange purse and shiny scarves
Tan dog Tay Tay chasing her orange Frisbees
orange honey from the monastery
aging puakenikeni

Orange questions
Orange moments of determination
Orange love in Presence.

Orange hallelujahs.
