Let's Hear it for Yellow!

Yellow And Friends

It's really easy being yellow- yielding
many shades and stages of brilliance
in nature's gifts of color for our eyes
Few agree on which of the offerings
is best- the soft lemon and squash
or is it sleek baby hair and blondes
Some like legal pads-Yellow Cabs-
changing styles of yellow neckties

Texans claim yellow roses- ignoring
the yellow bird up in banana tree

Sweet yellow watermelons appeal
or an other than red- juicy tomato
Forsythia a yellow lace over land
jonquils vie with daises or yellow
soft pleated skirts slowly ambling
These and the humble goldenrod
fade before a glorious morning sun
the epitome of yellow and friends

F William Broome 2005

...and the Sunslickers were nodding they approval as you were writing about their beloved color...

Yellow never looked so good to me. My whole life, I've ignored yellow [it's a childhood trauma, thing]. Interestingly, once I understood my dislike for yellow - I've come to appreciate it in a wonderfully sunny way. Reminds me of my poem - The Power of Red. There is so much in color that we never contemplate.

God bless you. Kathy

I held up a blue cup to my grandson Michael (
"19 months old). What color is this Michael?"
"lello", he replied. I asked him what color his Bike? "Lello", he replied when it is red.
Yellow or "Lello" is Michael's favorite color so "lello" it all is for now.
From your pen to Michael, this bright color signifies our inner shine.

It's easy to be yellow, reading all of its beautiful shades illustrated in these golden lines of brilliance...well done, Bill, my new favorite of yours!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
