A new poetry prompt site: Tweetspeak Poetry. This month’s poetry theme at Tweetspeak is "Purple, Plum, and Indigo," and the fun thing about this one is you can tweet your poem and they'll take a look. Thanks guys! Oh, and a tasty Spotify playlist too. Nice inspiration. I took this one rather literally
-- again! -- and took a walk with some purple prose. Have fun with the references.

Purple, Plum and Indigo

Rain.
Crazy.
Girls.

Prince.
Stephanie.
Amy and Emily.

Prose.
Line.
Ocean.

The Color.
Sugar.
Blue people.

Liz Taylor’s eyes.
Juicy summer fruit.
Genus Indigofera.

Barney.
Eggplant.
Dye.

The deepest hue
of a tired sunset
just before
it sinks to black.
