365 Poems:

Day 44

Today's poetry prompt is from Tweetspeak: What objects do you most associate with colors purple and indigo? What emotional states do the colors bring to mind?  For today’s poetry prompt, I’m asking you to explore those associations, to write them as vividly as you can....

Unfortunately my supply of vivacity is getting used up at work, so I'm settling for a short little start of a poem.

How to find purple

It’s beyond blue, so

don’t look at the sky --
Well, except maybe at dawn.
And of course sunset. 
And possibly during 
severe weather,
but let’s think positive:
we don’t want our purple
blown away.
