Ornate lover

A Poem

By Mosima Phakane

He loves in colour
Laughs in blue
The calm of sky and water
Smiles in silver
The bright of midnight
Blushes in pink
Daisies in spring
Hugs in gold
Specks of sunlight
Kisses in red
Rushes in my veins
Touches in green
The touch of spring
Shatters in grey
The rage of storms
Cries in white
The cold of snow
Breaks in black
Long winter nights
He loves in color
And I’m a blank canvas
Waiting for his love
