Perspective in Yellow

Fields throbbing with electric yellow
unfold to the foot of an ancient hill
quizzically curved like Buddha’s eyebrow.
The air zings with peppery pollen
as rapeseed, with its Midas touch,
starts to paint the landscape golden,
and country people everywhere
know that spring is finally here.

Kim M. Russell, 2018

  1. Gloriously written to match our prompt. It saddens me though this time last year, or maybe a little later, when I walked out dog all I saw was fields of gold as far as the horizon. This year all gone, all I see is houses, mud, machinery and builders, it hurts.
    That aside your poetry is beautiful.💜
