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

Surety

I was not mistaken
The light it was there
As the brightness envelops
me here in its glare

That promise of hope
which each new year brings
Echos crescendo
as unison sings

And the yellow that guided
me here to this place
is with radiance reflected
in the glow of my face

Tri-Haiku IX (yellow)

A little yellow
as a splash against the green
Memory of warmth

This yellow fills me
Drives away my winter blues
Hums a cheerful song

And I am yellow
Reflecting the sunshine here
I shine to the day

A little summer still

There’s yellow in the garden
a little summer still
despite the fact it’s winter
and we have November chill

So I’ll hold this to my heart
for its promise is right there
Reminding me that summer
will be mine again to share

November II

No. 3 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 Months II’ series

November and the brittle chill
settles on the land
Winter time has come to stay
felt by its colder hand

Eleventh of Gregorian
Chrysanthemum its flower
Topaz as its birthstone
to give the month its power

Yet in the Southern hemisphere
November sees the Spring
and warmer days of sunshine
to cause the heart to sing

Tri-yellow

Halcyon feel of yellow
my colour every time
Happiness exuded
for my soul to shine

Yellow irresistible
the colour of the sun
with zest that has no equal
enlightening everyone

Epitome of yellow
found ‘most everywhere
Captured and then treasured
a memory to share

October

No.2 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

October comes and days are shorter
Autumn’s settling in
Soon the clocks go back an hour
The light gets pale and thin

The tenth of the Gregorian
Thirty-one days of the seven
Calendula for its birthflower
with yellow sent from heaven
