Pride Poems: Yellow

A Poem Of Sunlight

This is the fourth installment in the Pride Poems series. This poem is about yellow and what the color on the original pride flag represents. This poem is about sunlight.

The bright rays kiss your skin
As we lay out in the grass
We care not of our sins
Or of our social class

Out here we are free
To lie down peacefully
Take a moment just to breathe
Feel the warmth on you and me

Shout out wishes to bright skies
Grazing hands and resting eyes
The bright yellow rays paint the sky
Make colorful pictures for you and I

Beams shine bright on beautiful bodies
A serene special ceremony of calm
The warmth carried off by a cool breeze
The subtle scent of cherry lip balm

Something calm and warm and good
Spreading everywhere like this feeling should
Lighting you up like nothing ever could
The sun shining as bright as your girlfriend would

The sweet rays shine in solidarity
As your entwined fingers provide clarity
The sun’s warmth is a gift, it is charity
The sun and her kiss both full of sincerity

Lit up but the sun and her love
As she lies intertwined with you
You begin to thank the sun above
For brightening everything you’ve been through

  1. This is so good, I love how you compared the subject of the poem to the sun in a way that is not as conventional, well done 🙂
