Lovely Amy! I think “chirping yellow” is a great shade name ! And the sound… something like canary!
Enjoy hearing the chirping and seeing yellow.
A wonderful use of synesthesia Amy. Whenever I see forsythia, I always 'smell' yellow. I love your
'chirping yellow'. :-)
Nicely done, Amy! Congratulations!
Evocative word choices! Congratulations, Amy!
So creative, Amy!
awesome poem, it works on every level, an instant Classic, congratulations
I read that forsythia in the USA does not appeal to any birds, so I imagine you filling in the lack of birdsong with a beautiful and happy tune yourself! :-)
Beautifully uplifting haiku!
Oh yes! I love this. I can hear it! My American goldfinches begin to turn bright yellow just as the forsythia starts to bloom.

If ever there was a 'chirpable' colour it would surely be yellow. Perfect.
… and your mother smiles. _m
Thanks, all, for your kind compliments! My haiku is based on an actual experience I had in my town! Julie Warther kindly included it in Ohio’s Holden Arboretum haiku path last year, in the spring selection.
