The prophecy of love’s kiss

by Martin Shone

***

Yonder soft orange
peeling away the daydreams
Evening warmth begins

To foretell the truth
of things we already know
Love begins to bloom

To foretell the truth
of things we have lost in time
Love blooms inside us

To foretell the truth
of things inside one and all
Love flowers love’s kiss

Yonder soft orange
peeling away the daydreams
Evening warmth begins
