Over-Easy

A salty yolk breaks over my soul
Yellow, yellow! What a gorgeous sight!
Yellow crayons, yellow blocks
and yellow pencils I do hold tight--

Sticky mustard dripping down
Clever cat eyes in the night
Yellow I see! Yell...
 Oh! A dandilion's fanciful flight!

Sweet orb of yellow:
You are the center of the sun
and every starry night
The center of the flowers
and every new delight.


This was written for Magpie Tales and also using NaWriPoMo's suggestion about writing about a color.

I am so glad my Aspie nonsense doesn't make me despise yellow like it seems to do so many on the spectrum.

The wonder of yellow - the colour of sunshine and eggs. The colour of brightness. Lovely write.
