Yearning for Yellow

Gray buildings 
Gray skies
Gray city
That’s what we see 5 days a week

Our time is spent
In offices
Pushing paper
We’re in need of some relief

The sun is the one
Who should hang in the sky
No more gloominess
Yellow light, hear our cry

We’re Yearning for Yellow 
To shine all around 
Envelope us - surround
Casting its hue like a golden net
To brighten our lives
Let yellow light abound

Rain
Thundering
Dark, black clouds
Will these dreary shadows ever fade? 

We need 
Radiance
Filling us up
For amber light I would surely trade

The sun is the one
Who should hang in the sky
No more gloominess
Yellow light, hear our cry

Luminosity, everything’s revealed
Joy everywhere, no longer concealed

We’re Yearning for Yellow 
To shine all around 
Envelope us - surround
Casting its hue like a golden net
To brighten our lives
Let yellow light abound



For Samil Al-Khalil's "Small Cage Big Bird" contest

    wonderful write Corinne. Curious how Yearning for Yellow is in cap letters, usually denotes God or some sort of religious/spiritual awakening, in which case it's very much to the point and indeed we all yearn for it constantly and rarely ever see it, even though it's always been there shining through dark clouds of obscurity and fog. if only there was a way of undoing the fog we may get a better sense of how things ought to be.

    We've had gloom here after a drought and it gets one down. We all need that light. Very well expressed. Keep writing. Sara
