Old Gold



Maybe a muted yellow, but a very vibrant view,
Merewether waterfront and a sky and sea of blue.
A solitary reader enjoys the morning sun;
Very soon it will be too hot, but the day has just begun.
The pillars may have faded, but their usefulness won't fade
As, later in the day, they give that very welcome shade.
And, unless I'm much mistaken, they still put on a show,
Even when the monochrome removes the golden glow!

Sturdy, useful.
Posing, preening, flaunting.
Transformed by an artist.

Wonderful poetry to tell us about your mellow yellow...I wish I were there though I do love San Francisco...and filigreed shovels!! That would make digging so much nicer!

Reading by the sea—
an open book opens minds,
sets prisoners free.

Yellow lupines—poisonous!
