Rise above

Hardship’s fray

In gentle curls

Of delicate

Pink,

And an underbelly

Of powerful

Orange

Smelted from the

Brink.

 

 

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Orange and Pink

  1. I love pink and orange together – so funny because my sister hates it. I actually have a shirt that she forbids I wear in her presence πŸ˜‰ Which, of course, I totally ignored. Mind you, It has long been disposed of. Now I miss it.
    Oh! And lovely poem πŸ˜‰

    • Well, you may just need to do something about getting another pink-orange combo top! πŸ™‚ LOL about the ‘forbidding’ by the sister … me thinks, she ain’t got no right to tell ya what to wear (though she does have the right to put some … um … distance … between ya two when you spending time together so … ;)) — it reminds me of how some in my family told me that if I don’t get a smartphone (that was some years back–I’m a dinosaur but not THAT dinosaury) they would: a. not be seen in public with me and my (then) flip phone; b. would no longer send me photos to my email when everyone else in the family was using Whatsapp for it … πŸ˜‰ Let’s just say that peer pressure worked in that regard and I’m grateful … cuz I love my smartphone now … (yeah, they rub it in sometimes, but that’s family — it is mandatory).
      πŸ™‚

      • Ha ha ha! Said sister’s husband had the flip-phone for the longest time… Till fooling around, saying it was tougher than all our smart phones and then proceeded to break it.
        She’s just foolin’ around. And yes, if I still had it, I shore as shit would not refrain from wearing it in missy’s company! πŸ˜€

      • Oh I am, definitely… and, all joking aside, I really would love for us to hook up – would not assume, though.
        You know those cases of “yeah, sure, come, I’ll take you around town” till you say you’re coming and they’re like “oh. you were serious…”

      • Yeah, me forget you don’t yet know me as well as I know me … πŸ˜€
        So, dear Dale … let’s get the wonderin’ outta the way, shall we? πŸ˜‰
        Joking aside:
        I sure do know the kind of “oh, if you’re in my neck of the woods some day, give me a call and maybe we’ll grab coffee,” and which is effectively a “perhaps yes, sometime, but most likely not really.”

        So .. that ain’t what I meant.

        What I DID mean was: I think it’ll be fun to get together and hang out when you come to NYC and I think it’d be a riot to traipse about town and have me show you around some (disclaimer: I don’t think any human can see – or show – all of this crazy metropolis in one visit, no matter how long … but this doesn’t mean one should not try to eat this elephant one bite at a time …. ;)).

        So, while I cannot offer lodging (realities of NYC mini-apartments and a rotating cast of family couch surfing through my place), we can certainly put our heads (and calendars) together and look at possible weekends in the spring and some ideas for things to do for some NYC’ing.

        How that sound?
        Me (de serious in-poyson non-poisson)
