Poem: Blending

By: A. R. Sancheti

marigold

Yellow
Unchangingly cheerful like my childhood
with rays of sunshine that radiate warmth
on the most drab days
the color yellow is my mother’s warmth with every touch

Red
My friends constantly fiery with passion and pizzazz
red is a person who has strength,
self-confidence, and is assertive.
It is what I have grown to replicate
by breaking out of my shell
and speaking my heart even when I’m not asked.

Marigold
Not cheerful yellow
Not fiery red
Not like either

Instead a mixture that creates a new hue
that has its own depth and distinction.
A speck of marigold is a diamond in the rough,
beautiful for being unlike any other.
