When You See Yellow, What Comes To Mind?

When you read the word ‘yellow’

What comes to mind?

I think of the bright sun;

Which makes all things look beautiful with its light;

Calls out to plants and trees to stretch out their branches;

And flowers to open up their petals;

Though we can’t stare at it with our naked eyes;

Because of its blinding brightness;

With it, we can see everything in full color;


When I think of yellow;

I see ripe bananas in my mind’s eye;

I imagine its sweet taste in my mouth;

And consider its nutritional value in my body;

I thank God for the gift of fruits to enjoy;

When I think of yellow;

I can’t help but think of smileys;

How cute they look and yet how well

They depict our varying moods and emotions;

Even when you run out things to type in a chat;

They come to your rescue;

So good to be alive in this day and age!


The color yellow reminds me of optimism and gaiety;

Pleasure and celebration;

It’s also associated with knowledge and wisdom;

As well as cowardice and fright;

On the road, yellow is for caution;

Don’t get me started on the many national flags;

It is a beautiful color, no doubt;

It’s worth appreciating;


So do well to be yellow with optimism this day and month;

And not with jealousy or cowardice;

And you’ll be on your way to have a blissful day!
