City Sonnet Photo-a-Day Challenge: June 02, 2019. Yellow

Here is my entry for City Sonnet’s June Photo-a-Day Challenge for yellow.

Yellow fish that looks like a clay figure. Check out its little lips.

Over time, canary yellow has become one of my favorite colors. Its bright color cheers me up and makes me think of warmth, sweetness, and the open country fields sprinkled with yellow daisies.

According to the website Empowered by Color, colors have emotions associated with it: “the color psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun.” and “In the meaning of colors, yellow inspires original thought and inquisitiveness.”

One year in college I lived in an apartment with canary yellow kitchen walls with bright green cabinet knobs. I didn’t complain since this was my first apartment to live in by myself and my parents paid the rent. Anything would do. I often wondered what the landlord was thinking in picking this unconventional color for the kitchen walls. Shouldn’t it be white, like the walls at home? It’s a color that grew on me and I realized that its brightness creates a cheerful and soothing ambiance. Now I love yellow.

Flower of the Day: November 25, 2018

“The earth laughs in flowers.” 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Daisies remind me of open fields and sunshine. Their simplicity is full of cheerfulness. 

When Elliot was around 3 years old, our daily morning routine involved walking to Starbucks every morning. Our place was conveniently located right across the street from it, so this gave us time to walk, socialize, hang out, and learn to love the cafe culture. lol. Elliot became enamored with the row of daisies on the sidewalk and he picked one every day. To this day, when he sees a daisy and he’s in a happy mood, he’ll pick one for me and his sister to put in our hair.  

Simple and cheerful
