The yellow revisited

8 of 12 in the Jemverse ‘October’ series

Underneath the canopy
the yellow on the ground
the changing of the seasons
as autumn comes around
The beauty at this time of year
takes my breath away
enraptured by the wonder
on this fine October day

Redolent of the sun

Colours I remember
from when I was very young
Stayed with me into later years
with so many seasons come
But one has been a steadfast
for me a lucky fellow
The vibrancy of summer
captured in the colour yellow

It’s been with me through all the years
Born to the summer I
above all others constant
as many have gone by
So of all that I remember
Colours, lovely every one
Yellow is the best for me
Redolent of the sun

Joie de vivre III

Just a simple glimpse
of yellow does the trick
to bring a smile and tear

Fills my heart
with summer sun
and joie de vivre and cheer

Little Yellow

Little yellow dandelions
growing wildly there
And yes, I know that they are weeds
but I don’t really care

For anything that’s yellow
and grown by Nature’s hand
is good and I’m content with that
especially on my land

So they can keep on growing
yellow in the sun
as I’ll be sure to leave them
to be loved by everyone

Small yellow

And then there’s small yellow
the voice of the Spring
which always each year
brings reason to sing
For this yellow, resplendent
like a slap in the face
tells winter still lurking
to be gone from this place
As now are the times
for the warming of knees
and the walking on sand
beside summer seas

This yellow like sunshine
grabs hold with embrace
imbued with a gifting
born simply of grace
And in small yellow flowers
Forsythia gives
a voice to the Spring
and the reason it lives
Reflecting the sunshine
with colour and more
it gives us the promise
of what lies in store

March

No.7 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

I think that if there’s one
thing to remind me of the Spring
It is the humble daffodil
and the pleasure it will bring

It’s all about the yellow
bringing warmth sealed by the sun
And something of the promise
as the shadow days are done

So as February fades to March
its birth flower to the fore
Here’s to the humble daffodil
with a hearty loud encore

The Yellow II

You know I’ve quite missed the yellow
in all of the blue
that’s been hanging around for a while
So it’s good to find colour
reminiscent of Spring
that brings with it zest and a smile

It’s right there in the sunshine
and daffodils too
poking their heads from the ground
The harshness of winter
slip slides away
as they rise to the warmth they have found
