YELLOW ALARM NO. 3

unpopular with many, its associations
are largely negative – cowardice, jaundice, aging
even though it expresses the warmth of the sun
and the outburst of springtime
in daffodils and dandelions
and then there’s the Yellow Brick Road

in the reflection of gold or the sun or prairie fire
is foreboding and loss, the unease in riches
and all that’s at risk in the pursuit of worldly treasures

even so, in the outposts of the Old Ways
the remnant of vigilant individuals and circles
comes counsel and caution

sunshine and spring
moments of clarity and calm
between howling and rock
