Bridges in Fall

Bridges in Fall


I hear you sing 
And I see yellow
My dark dashes away
In golden rays of sun
Voice shining and warm
The soft yellow of firelight
Feeling like coming home
And even cold 
It is the yellow of stars
Too far away to touch
But felt all the same
I wanna be around
Cause your love is 
Smooth mellow yellow
It calms me down

  1. I love the yellow tones in your poem, Lori, the way your ‘dark dashes away / In golden rays of sun’, and the subtle inclusion of the song title. My favourite lines are:
    ‘It is the yellow of stars
    Too far away to touch
    But felt all the same’.
