Sunset colors

Sunset colors

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
Rabindranath Tagore

“Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.”
Jack Kerouac

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
John Steinbeck

“Dusk is just an illusion, because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way, as few things cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it fee,l I remember wondering, to be always together, yet forever apart?”
Nicholas Sparks

A bloodless rose

She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her. I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her.
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

A bloodless rose

Let me forget the days with silent sunsets,
with violins that howl, sore and burning,
while on top of the emerald globe the gods
surrender to the infinity of a triumphant passion.

Let me forget that the wind has your voice,
your bitterness, your arctic glow,
in a universe of malignant apples and artificial legends,
where love is a primeval style of calligraphy.

Let me be free of the twilight with raw ashes,
of dreams burning under the breath of lonely dragons,
let me believe in the power of talismans,
so I can find a way to bring a dead rose back to life.
