Yellow beauty

first tulips of 2022
yellow
catching my breath
mellow

sunshine and summer
welcoming radiant days
freedom and lightness

the beans of power
bitter and hot, delicious
at the crack of dawn

snowflakes and freezing
on my doorsteps, going out
hat, scarf, gloves and boots

Lots of tulips at the grocery store last weekend! All colours, spring was in the air, I almost forgot the freezing weather outside. I got the yellow ones to warm up my home and my mood. This poem depicts my mornings this week, the yellow tulips on the kitchen countertop, the coffee brewing, the warm indoors contrasting with the cold and the snow outside. Hope you find wonderful flowers on your way today, if not in the garden at least at the grocery store!
