A spark of yellow

Help me to remember:
just because I have lemons,
I don't have to make lemonade,
no matter what
the popular wisdom says.
Not all lemons are bad, you know --
sometimes we grow them
or buy them
on purpose;
for the smell,
or the taste,
or even just the bright golden glory of them.
And if,
by some chance,
you got a lemon
when you were hoping for something else --
well, then; lemonade might be a good thing...
or maybe you could just accept it,
as an unexpected gift,
a spark of yellow
to enliven a life of deep, dark green...
