Pretty Light Purple

February 24, 2021

Tangy,
tropical,
with a hint of
discipline.

It's vulnerable
yet tough,
not unlike me,
it's
a bag of PopRocks 
popping in your mouth
like mini volcanos
when you least expect.
It used to be a symbol of royal
in medieval times,
it's a recipe
filled with
PopRocks
tropical blends,
surprises
and some attitude.

It really is 
a passion fruit,
passionate and outspoken,
it's also a hint of blackberry
secluded.
It's soft too
like the edge of a 
just out of the laundry
blanket,
it's like a crisp spring day
where it's windy
but sunny,
unexpected
by nice.
Prompt: a poem about what your favorite color tastes like (by FantasyOtter12)
Welp, this is what I think of purple, comment if you're a purple fan too (or not as well), and if you agree with these!

    Lovely imagery and your word choice is excellent. I really like this.
    "Tangy,
    tropical,
    with a hint of
    discipline." - The word 'discipline' here is a brilliant choice and you've made it fit perfectly into the poem.
    "It's soft too
    like the edge of a
    just out of the laundry
    blanket," - Stunning!

    My mom’s favorite color is purple :). I really like this! Especially how you used multiple ways to describe the color. And the first sentence. Great job!
    (I don’t usually ask new people for book recommendations, but I kinda want to try out some romance books. Do you have any good for newcomers? [Nothing with sex and minimal kissing and maybe other genres blended in please XD] Thanks so much!)

    I love this! I agree that purple is vulnerable and tough. Purple is regal to me. Thank you for your comment :)

    I really liked this one, and it made total sense. It was abstract, but also not XD

    Re: Thank you, I wrote four for this prompt, (my friends wanted me to write about their favorite colors), but I think Blue is my favorite out of the four!
