A-Z Challenge: Y

Y is for Yellow


Yellow is daffodil,
daisy eye
dandelions picked
in childhood spring.
Yellow is forsethia
and tall rags of golden rod.

Yellow is the sallow skin of age,
parchment worn diaphanous,
old words on paper
left to dry inside of books.
Yellow is the paint of kitchens
warm with baking bread.

Yellow is midday sun,
yoke centered in albumen.
Primary strong and soft,
it mixes with the blue sky
to become green
like grass
like hope.
