Odd Choice

The yellow car was welcomed by the flock of frowning, peeking humans waiting inside the old church.

This occasion is usually painted in pure white, a contrast to the auto parked in front of the door that’s just very bright.

But the bride seated inside is as jolly as the color of the sun, so she picked a car that looked oh so fun!

Brings joy as sun rises,
shows jealousy once given,
proves fruits sweetness,
a color from heaven.

In response to Blogging from A to Z ChallengeX is for Xiaoshi


Xiaoshi, (small poem,shi = poetry / xiao = little, diminutive or small) is a genre of Chinese poetry from the 1920s. It is a fragmented poem with minimal explanation. It teams seemingly unrelated images with little indication of cause and effect. The frame is at the discretion of the poet although in sync with most Chinese poetry, it is common to be written as a quatrain.
