a color series: yellow

Yellow is cheerful, exuberant, cozy, potential.

Yellow is summer and silly, chartreuse and daffodil.

Yellow is the color of bright new beginnings.

Yellow is flaxen, buff, and prince of pastel.

Yellow is banana and morning, sunbeam and smile.

Yellow is canary, goldfinch, swallowtail.

Yellow is lemon and meringue, primrose and light.

Yellow is pride, portent, and long golden silence.

Yellow is sunshine, towhead, and dandelion kisses.

Yellow is coward and jaundice, the keeper of sallow.

Yellow is blond and beauty, with a slight hint of beige.

Yellow is ranunculus, the maker of hay.

Yellow is pineapple dreams, topaz visions.

Yellow is gilded, brilliant, hope.
