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 task

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
