Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge – Orange

Sue W and GC are the hosts of Weekly Prompts

“Orange is red, brought nearer to humanity by yellow.” ~ Wassily Kandinsky.

This weekend is our monthly colour challenge, and for August, partner GC and I have chosen the colour Orange.

Please feel free to interpret the challenge in any way you wish – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.

Please tag #Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge.


Slowly the yellow orb of burning gases sinks into the sky

The sky gradually changes its color from yellow, to orange

Orange deepens to red that slowly merges in the blue of dusk

A fascinating show of colors that nature puts on every evening

I sometimes am privileged to watch when the day fades it’s colors

And take on the magnificent hues of dusk and eventide

The sun sets with a promise that it will rise again tomorrow

And we go to bed each night expecting to wake up to another day

  1. Where I live I have a spectacular view of the sunsets! Sunrise is on the other side of the building so I don’t see it. But I enjoy seeing the sky brighten and the clouds drift in the morning light.
