    Yellow

    He is sunshine, in the sycamore, yellow paint, April day way.
    When he walks, his features blur like unformed clay, wind, or the waves when they sing.
    But it never draws attention,
    quiet, perpetually smiling, warm warm. . .
    Sweet maple syrup, Christmas, and clementines all combined.
    Rain in golden daytime, tulips aching for summertime.
    Lo, All the earth cries, What a pleasure to carry his feet!
    And in the night,
    the blackness soaks up his light,
    and feeds it to the stars,
    so they donít have to compete with him.

    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    love leaves a memory no one can steal....
