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.
