Standing in the door yellow
Chocolate Easter bow yellow
Very nice to see you yellow
Running through the meadow yellow
A bit bent in the middle yellow
Cool, calm lemon yellow
Have a cup of tea yellow
Sink into a hammock on a warm summer day yellow
Last week while I was driving back home on a particularly miserable day, I thought how much I needed to cheer myself up. I was tired of rain, cold and grey. In fact, I was tired. I had taken myself off to the cinema to while away a very unpromising Saturday afternoon. I went to see Hidden Figures, a film about the Black women, who gifted in science and maths, contributed to NASA’s space missions. What an uplifting and thoroughly inspiring story! If you have not seen the film, then go and see it. It is worth every penny.
On the way home, my mind turned to what I could do… yellow I thought. Yellow is a cheerful, uplifting colour. What does yellow remind me of? Well the ideas skipped into my head and out again as rapidly. “No, no no!” I said, “Wait, I am driving!!” but the ideas are ephemeral things and rather fickle. I managed to pull the car into the drive, flick on the dictaphone on my mobile and get a few of the little creatures fixed, before they headed off across the fields. Sometimes, ideas are like that! Well they are for me!
