The Lesson of The Color Yellow … Friday Fictioneers

A big shout out to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and Friday Fictioneers. An outstanding place for authors to finesse their writing style each week by writing a flash fiction (100 words or less) or short story based on a photo prompt. For more info on how you can be a part of this fun loving group of writers or to just sample their creativity, click HERE!

The crowd was spellbound.

“It’s not just about the color yellow,” she said pausing for affect. “Although if one thinks about it yellow’s a most exceptional color. After all the sun shines yellow, the moon at its brightest is a rich golden yellow and we mustn’t forget glorious spring daffodils. Yes, yellow a truly fulfilling aspect of color.”

The shining vision of loveliness continued. “You see it’s not only about color in one’s life. It’s about the absence of it and most definitely one color should never be sufficient.”

Then with a mighty sweep of her wings the angel vanished from view.


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my words. Have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend to come, rich with colors of every kind!

With sincere affection

    • Hi Björn, thank you. We do need all those colors, I agree. Too easy to become monochrome in our lives, although sometimes these limitations can add to creativity … but I wander with my words. Thank you for stopping by and commenting, very much appreciate you!

    • Thank you Rochelle for your kind words. Purple is a magnificent color (my daughter’s favorite also). I think it suits you well. I’ve always thought there was something childlike about the daffodil, in a wonderful sort of way (if that makes any kind of sense)! Again, my thanks! 🙂

  1. Have always loved angels — snow angels and the ethereal kind. I do believe in them I’ve often said to friends working through a difficult time, If you turn your head a bit each day, you’ll hear the angels along the way.
    Really love this piece!

Thank you for your thoughts!
