X for ABC Wednesday




Xanthic - yellow, yellowish


Aha!

Breaking through gray clouds pregnant with rain, a bright xanthic orb brightens the sky and warms the shadows. A pile of shoes shed near the front door during cold and dark are now ignored in favor of rubbing sole to earth and feeling the purr.

Oh, yes, pour me a full summer!

Beautiful poetry. You paint a lovely bright picture and your fractal is so pretty. It would make a great notecard.

A hard letter to write about, but you did it!

Sam Liu said...

Amy said...

Purr and pour - great imagery, and your fractal is awesome! Am catching up and wanted to let you know I really love your OSI haiku as well as the watercolor sketch!

Anna said...

That was lovely!
And now I know that the colour yellow can be an X-word!
Beautiful poetry! For once, it is actually sunny where I am now. The winters are very long and dark, dark, dark. So a lot of us here are a little crazy just because the sun is shining!

Give me a bucket of summer if you please!
Best wishes,
Anna

The xanthic orb has been wonderful here.
Love your imagery, the words pour me a full summer makes me feel quite giddy in anticipation.

gardenpath said...

Love that fractal.
We have had summer the last two days. And, here in Maine, sometimes we don't get a whole lot more than that. I only have four short sleeved shirts, and that is enough!

Cheryl said...

This was just lovely. I too noticed that so many words beginning with xan- were about yellow pigmentation.

Please pour me a tall one; it was a very long winter here.

SandyCarlson said...

I like that image so very much. Beautiful poem. And the purring earth! Gorgeous.

Jingle said...

nice take ob the letter.
Happy Tuesday!

Stan Ski said...

And just keep topping it up.
I wonder how many others will think of Xanthic...

Hildred and Charles said...

Lovely fractal and nice word imagery.

Summer is being a great tease here, - present one day, fled the next. I think there must be a hole in the bucket!

Paula Scott said...

Ooooo! Nice choice for "X"! Nice image too.

anthonynorth said...

That last line is just brilliant.

Grace and Bradley said...

You make Xanthic into such a beautiful word!!

Reader Wil said...

Lovely poem that goes with the beautiful fractal image. Thanks for the visit and comment.This performance is not my cuppa tea either,
but if you hear it played by an Aborigene in a cave it sounds very mysterious. I have a didgeridoo made by an Aborigene artist in Hopevale. He is an uncle of my daughter's ex-husband. I can't play it for I didn't master the circular breathing.

Oh how I love summer when its xanthic orb makes everything come alive! :)

Jay said...

Bring it on!!! I think we would all like a good summer.

Linda frances said...

Pour me a full summer--absolutely a beautiful image. Wonderful word for X and enticing words

Paula said...

Your poem reminds me of the first days of summer when I was a kid. Even though I now prefer cool weather, you never lose those memories.
Love your image too!

Marie said...

Your post is more poetical than mine, for sure :-))

My photo was taken on the Golden Gate Bridge (the entrance).

Have a nice evening.

Gayle said...

Beautiful writing - I like the sound of the word, too. Hope you have a bright and wonderful week!

LD said...
