9 January: Yellow Brick

Yellow Brick

How do you endure it, 
that colour of jaundice brick. 
Brick should be earthy, 
and red, warm as a sunset, 

not sick as a liver.  

It's the earth, he replied. 
The clay is yellow. 

An answer, pure and simplified.

The front windows were  
reflecting stray clouds 
and an amber sunset, 

and it filled the horizon 
like a drug's warm flood.

  1. Do you do the artwork first and poem second or make an image to fit the words?

    1. Thank you! I keep meaning to write you. I’ll try today. I’ve been a bit under the weather later.

      1. Sorry to hear you’ve been under the weather. Glad you got home safely. We’ve been away the last 4 days. I was thinking of writing tonight. But also tempted by checking out with a movie.


        1. Just a really heavy cold, nothing serious.
