Happy Is a Yellow Word

For National Poetry Month, one of my friends challenged our writing group to write poetry. I ended up finishing two poems and started several that need more work before I share them. My friends gave me feedback and I edited one of the poems. Since I feel like I actually accomplished something with poetry and because the poem makes me happy, I thought I would share it.

“happy is a yellow word”
happy is a yellow word
full of bright, full of light
bumblebees buzzing among dandelions
sunshine painted on the clouds
a child’s fingerprints
smearing the silhouette of the sun
across a blank page
happy is a yellow word
full of hope, full of joy
the softness of the stars at night
canaries singing a morning song
honey oozing from a golden hive of activity
a field of sunflowers
lifted toward brighter skies
