Yellow

The brightest of them
Large light shining from the sky
Glows through closed eyelids
When you see it you must smile
The essence of happy face

Tanka me a color contest

    Being partially colored blind this is the one color I can fully see.

    Bright and beautiful. I'm a lover of the sun so this made me smile! :) Also...yellow! The color you see the best!

    I'm glad I can see the color of happy!

    You captured the joy out of the color, for sure... especially with the "glowing through closed eyelids" line. Looks like there's plenty of competition in the contest, methinks... lol. Unfortunately, I'm told yellow is the one color that doesn't look good on me. It doesn't jive well with pale skin... lol.

    I truly love the color yellow, it is a very bright and happy color! You can't help but to smile, as you said, when you see the color yellow! Your poem glows with a special power within it! I do have to point out that Andrea is particularly picky about following her rules and she said that the title can only be the color you talked about in your Tanka, that means your title can only be Yellow, not Tanka Me Yellow, sorry, I don't mean to bring you this news! Very awesome piece, Great Work!!
