Delight In Yellow

Yellow. If anyone asked me what my favourite colour is, I don't think I'd say yellow. But here it is and every time I see pure yellow it washes over me like delight in the form of a colour. A miracle. And I ask myself, how can anything be so yellow?!

Maples trees turn vibrantly yellow, sometimes blushing lightly before turning a flaming scarlet red. These drifts of golden leaves remind me of treasure, childhood dreams of gold coins.

A cloud of yellow! Startling! A marvel!
