Orange as the Sunrise

  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Orange as the Sunrise

I am the un-defined
The chameleon spectator spy
Just slowly passing by
Divine with grace
Tracing temptation in place
Towards the spiders web
I have been mislead
Towards direction of understanding
Picking apples from the tree
This one is too ripe, this one too red
This one too bitter, this one too sweet
There’s something about this tree
I can never find
But behind me
Sits strawberry fields
Peach trees and kiwi
Watermelon and mango
Blackberries and grapes
Nectarines and oranges
As orange as the sunrise
My eyes wide towards the dark
Picking apples naïve with remark

Wow.. a religious experience.. perfect for a Sunday morning. Why choose an apple when there is so much awaiting us? Great job..You're correct.. I totally love this one.! Hugs SG

pocket, This is so fresh and clever. In its one way a bit psychedelic. Also I can smell the sweet fruits and their luscious juices ass I read on. The allusions I find to other great works are Apples- Adam & Eve, strawberry fields-The Beatles, and believe it or not many moons ago I think in the 1980's Bette Midler had a stage show which was a bit raunchy and she dressed up in fake fruits and strutteed and sang and danced (all this pops into my mind when I read this spectacular poem of yours! Also take a look at my latest poem: Escapism. ginga ginga

i find this poem intriguing and rhyming. It has meaning and timing.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
