Yellow is the color of sun rays and moon beams.
It’s happiness and bright days, puppies,
buttercups, bananas, butter cookies and lemons
in your tea for a bit of tang. Yellow was my
son’s favorite color, a spiritual color now
that permeates and changes you. Yellow rescues,
you can’t be sad when surrounded
by the color yellow.
It’s the color of old love letters from fourty years
ago, ragged and torn from the readings, placed on
the top shelf in a worn oak box with the newer notes,
too. Yellow turns
everything in it’s shadow to a golden hue,
something unexpected and uplifting. It’s
the changing color of autumn that quenches
heat soaked Florida summers.
is the color of life lived with gladness.
