Poem from The Color Series: Yellow


As chaos has broken
And darkness fades away,
Seek out that quiet reflection
And choose to seize the day.

Once proud and ambitious,
Or guilty of deceit -
That past has slipped into decay
And now is obsolete.

Feel not the age of pain,
Or see those ghosts of loss,
For now the Sun holds up the sky
And lifts that heavy cross.

Time for life’s honey’d kiss
And all gifts of the gods.
Dance with rare vitality
And reject all cruel façades.

-Amber JoAnn
