Yellow of Coldplay is one of my most favourite songs and I was more than happy to write for a writing challenge on Instagram with the song as prompt, we could write keeping the mood of the song in mind or simply for a word from the song or a line, I chose to write for the colour Yellow, also kept something of the song in the poem, Yellow’s a happy colour I think, so I wrote a happy poem, I hope you like, thank you.

I knew him since I learnt why roses carried fragrance…
have felt his heartbeat in mine…
he was never a stranger…never distant…
I carried him in my veins…
his name flowed through me always…
going in circles entering and exiting my heart…
ever since I learnt that the heart beats in rhythm
I have danced to his tunes…
ever since I learnt how the sunflower only for the sun blooms…
I’ve always heard his silent footsteps
stumbling into my life resonate in my mind…
have always felt his warmth…felt our hands entwine…
I was always surrounded by his shadow
shadows that were never dark…always yellow…
like standing in blooming mustard fields
or on pavements covered with golden autumn leaves…
yellow shadows like smiles…like upside down sunny skies…
he brought yellow to my world…
even before my eyes recognised his face…
he still makes my days…
warm and bright…
each day when he wakes up by my side…
