a color series: purple

Purple is lavender, passion, velvet and rain.

Purple is crocus and violet, pansy and sunset.

Purple is the color of rhythm and rhyme.

Purple calls out your name in the deep dark of night.

Purple is royalty’s secret, the keeper of time.

Purple is grape and wine, proud pie and mulberry.

Purple dances with burgundy, saturated bliss.

Purple is visions of sugar plum, amethyst sparkle.

Purple is mauve and melody, habit and heather.

Purple is sassy and decadent, a cheshire cat smile.

Purple is bruise and empathy, majestic mountains.

Purple is mist and morning, tornado and vine.

Purple is heart and poet and three shades of hunger.

Purple is age and laughter, inertia’s reply.
