What’s there in the … colour

Yellow and orange, naturally 

make a heady combination, 

but when it’s on a rose, 

it looks absolutely

gorgeous, captivating!

This charming rose actually 

starts with a yellow bud, 

opens up with tender,

yellow petals,  and then,

gradually starts transcolouring,

petal by petal, to orange,

blossoming into a

yellow-orange miracle. 

Sheer magic, ain’t it?

The pink rose behind, 

gapes in wonder. 

Envious? Naw! Not at all! 

It knows full well,

A rose is a rose, the king of flowers!

What’s there in the colour?
