Yellow Is the Color... (And the Winners!)

Yellow is the color of soft moonlight

Of stars that twinkle in the night

Of noonday sun with shining rays

To warm and brighten all our days.

Yellow is the color of children's joy

A twirling girl, a whirling boy

A golden store of memory

That shimmers where the eye can't see.

Yellow is the color of a fading page

A sweet reflection on life's stage

An ember glowing deep within

'Til life sets it ablaze again.

Each of your yellow pictures is so unique and special.

Darlene said...

I agree with Joyful Noise....How you ever find the neatest pictures,and then write such a great poem to go with them is beyond me. Maybe I will try it sometime just to see if I could do it. (I'm not too fond of yellow either)

Congratulations to all the winners!

I have just discovered my love for yellow. It was a completely subconscious thing. I realized Yellow is my favorite color for Faye. I have also completely decorated her room in yellow. That color is so beautiful on my little girl! Just makes you happy, hu?
