Cool and calm like the oceans wide,
Fieriness unable to hide,
A perfect union to create me!
So divine, I spark creativity.
The color of kings, am I
All because of a precious dye.
Only the wealthy could afford
Phoenician wool. I was so adored!
I'm found in purple waves
Of lavender fields on summer days.
A relaxing aroma, calms your mind.
Here inner peace you'll find.
I'm compassion, wisdom, more.
All those other colors - a bore.
Some say too much purple is elegant
Or was it arrogant?...
I wrote this poem in response to the dVerse writing prompt. This week Mich challenged us to write from the perspective of a color. I found this hard to get started, not knowing which color to choose. Then during my children’s history lesson today, I found the inspiration I needed. 😊
