Layers of Language


 This rose is red. 
 The sun is setting. 

 The sun sets later in the summer 
 than in the winter. 
 Many flowers display various shades of red. 

 A young girl is like a beautiful flower. 
 When the sun sets, it is like a door closing. 

 The girl in her red dress dances 
 like the sun's last moments before it sets. 

 At the darkest days of the year 
 our tribe lights fires 
 to prevent the sun 
 from being swallowed by the darkness.
