Yellow Month

Posted on

Buidhe
One month a year
Scotland turns yellow.
In hedgerows,
gorse’s delicate mustard
petals, curtain-off
its evergreen thorny skeleton.
Around Tayside, the broom
sits next to the gorse,
its long-stems are dappled
with lemony coloured buds.
Upon the hill,
rapeseed swirls into
a golden canvas painted
with a farmer’s palate knife.
On my street,
the golden tree rains
butterfly blossoms,
dangling like a dew-drops.
In the gardens, and verges, and parks
patches of tulips and daffodils and dandelions
form a quilt of bright yellow.
Last year was spent behind
bus shelters, office frontages,
behind classroom windows.
Tinted green, blue, and grey,
erasing the away the yellow.
This year, I am free
to open the sash
to let in the month of yellow.

Dear all,

We are pleased to invite you to the next UWE Meet and Greet event in Dundee (City of Discovery) on 17th – 19th May 2019. The University of Dundee and the City Chambers are already confirmed as venues for this event which will be a combination of Discussion, Friendship and Culture
This year, our Conference theme is “My Identity. My Story“. 

Dundee is currently very much on the map with the opening of the new V&A Museum leading renewed showcasing of the city as a whole. Dundee has long been famous for Jam, Jute and Journalism, cities change as do people. Change has inspired our theme: our stories and how these interplay with our many identities, not least as women.

We are looking forward to meeting you, speakers will be announced very soon along with the information about the registration etc. and we hope that a number of you will be able to join us in Scotland next year. 

The Conference is open to all members of the University Women of Europe and their friends.
