Sun Squeezed Yellow


Paint me a day
with lemon squeezed yellow
Lime green meadows
beneath bluebell skies mellow

Brush in the shoots
of daffodils  sunny blooms
delegating room
for a robins red belly plumes

Stroke in this scene
daisies white with sunny smiles
altering this trial
of winter’s cold, but for awhile

Yellow, How you doin'? Hope the weather's better down there. We've bout' had enough of this @#&^$ up here. Sorry bout' that. :):):) I'll tell you a story. Had to blow the driveway into the alley, the alley onto the neighbors yard and then blow the neighbors yard so he can park his stupid truck on it. :) But I digress. :):):) Evidently more is coming. Have a lovely day Debra. Peace. :) Await a new one.

Hi Debra, first, did you typo stroke? Now let me seeeee. :) A winters dream of of the color yellow. Forgive me for being kind of a crass little fellow. :) If you catch my drift. :) Spring time can't come soon enough. Nice to join you in this sunny dream. Peace. :)

Well stoke means to add something to intensify something else... and thought it would work in the sentence and poem... I think to keep with the painting theme I will change it to stroke... lol

Lemon squeezed yellow and lime green reminded me of the Seahawks. Pretty poem with good description and rhyming.
