Mustard Yellow – A Poem

Painted facades in racing stripes once a summer rouge,

Now travelers and landscape sport a mustard yellow hue.

Street lines etch golden filigree in the diamond asphalt.

Dividing traffic’s to and fro with its citrine watermark.

Triathlon charioteers sporting yellow swoosh joggers

Jockey uphill, corn-yellow bikes in herculean fervor.

Spectator trees hold aloft their winged plumage

Of ripening branches in agate yellow,

Awaiting their yearly pilgrimage,

To offer their golden leaves as

Gilding to the ground below.

    Perfect description, you arranged in words t how I see these mustard yellows as you call them. When through Iโ€™m out on a walk I love the feeling the bring to the paved pathway, smiling naughty and looking so pretty. Is mustard yellow the common name. I have them in my garden too, at times frequent visitors.

    To lovely for words, how you see the image in your mind and find just the right and exquisite words with composition to express it.
