This weeks poetry jam challenge is to write about a poem about color. Here's my take on yellow:
Yellow is daffodil,
a dandelion picked in childhood spring,
and the tall rag of golden rod.
Yellow is the sallow skin of age,
parchment worn diaphanous,
old words on paper left
to dry inside of books;
warm with baking bread.
Yellow is the midday sun
yoke centered in albumen.
strong and soft, it mixes
with the blue of sky
and becomes green
