Bright Orange by Bonnie Buttimore (Highly Commended)

If I had to be any colour at all
Then I think I would like to be orange
Like lava erupting from a big volcano
Or a shining sun in the big, blue sky
Like a California Poppy sitting in the soil
Or basketball getting passed on the court
Or orange juice getting tipped into a glass
With bacon and eggs and toast for breakfast
Like a Jack O Lantern in Halloween
Or apricot hanging from a tall tree
Or a Pumpkin getting baked
Or a clam washed up on the seashore
Or a clown fish in the coral reef,
Just swimming around, looking
A goldfish in a fish tank
An oriole making its nest
Or an Irish Setter playing with its owner
Chasing an orange ball around the yard
I think orange is the best colour for me.
