Whozits and whatsits challenge, yesterday

the yellow cabinet sits
like a glowing wooden sun
in the midst of subtle greys
and darkest black
illumining the room
when night clouds
hide the moon

Over at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, members are posting daily challenges for those among us who are participating in NaPoWriMo. National Poetry Writing Month is nearing its close, but dedicated poets in the Imaginary Garden are still writing.
The photo above is from a series of shots taken by Toads member Lolamouse and her Babymouse in a store that is, apparently, beyond eclectic. Ms Mouse calls her challenge Whozits and Whatsits.
I chose this photo because I'm in the midst of a seemingly never-ending remodel of my living room (in fact, it's barely started, after months of planning and packing) and when I saw this intense Chinese yellow, I immediately coveted this cabinet. My colour scheme is grey, black, and white, with red accents. I'd love to have had this gorgeous yellow accent colour instead.

I was also drawn to this bright yellow cabinet. I'd have loved to have it, but it was quite pricey and would have been tough to get back home on the plane! Good luck on your remodeling!

Yes, that yellow cabinet would be a bit of sun in your home. Love the poem it inspired.
