Mellow Yellow

By Lynn White

Mellow Yellow

I’ve never been mad about saffron,
or turmeric, come to that
and the colour yellow
doesn’t suit me,
makes me look
washed out,
or so I think.
I like the colour though,
love daffodils
and buttercups,
even dandelions,
so I could celebrate them
by wearing it concealed.
But no one would know if they couldn’t see
so I don’t do that.
Instead it graces my kitchen walls.
There it’s timeless,
part of the kitchen
in every place I’ve lived
from back then to eternity.
