Ode to Purple

purple, you are in your prime!
in full swing,
reaching your pinnacle,
reigning supreme,
the belle of the ball.



your moods are many,
from dark and brooding
to bold and dramatic,
royal, vibrant, exciting…
yet sometimes light and frivolous.

at times you favor a delicate pink,
other times you align yourself
with the blues…

to me you radiate passion,
whatever the mood
you never fail to move me
and touch my spirit

already i see you starting to fade,
losing some of your fabulous june luster,
i know you’re due for a break
but i know you will be back
dancing joyfully
in all your glory!

"i think it pisses god off 
if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere
and don't notice it".
