The different shades of yellow


I am undecided on the colour yellow

Its different shades draw me close

With the promise of a new flower

Its core and petals a sight for sore eyes

With the break of a new dawn and setting of an old sun

A beautiful breach in the line where sky meets land

With the buzz of bees busy with their tasks

Working hard to make every drop of honey

With the assurance of riches

Piled up neatly in gold bars and rings

I resist the shades of yellow when I remember

The pungent smell of vomitus

Spewed from sickened guts

The skin hue that is a sign

The hallmark of a liver gone bad

The dryness of humour

Seeping from the pores of a choleric fellow

The heartlessness of a friend

When they turn betrayer

I remain undecided on the colour yellow

But will take each shade as it comes

One shade at a time

  1. I was obsessed with yellow a while back, so enjoyed reading this all the more, seeing someone else’s take on yellow. Of course, the style also helped. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just realized this could sound condescending. It’s late here, so forgive me if it does. Seriously, I did enjoy your style.
