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.
