Message from Writer

"Words gather desire inside your head
Gathering emotions, gathering feeling, gathering
Meaning, gaining a purpose other than being
Becoming something other than words, other than
Thoughts ricocheting through my mind breaking through to the
Outside, darting to others, creating a spark in their hearts
My words just start in my
Head but never end there

The Lilac Canopy

April 23, 2021


Purple is the canopy above me,
The lilac blossoms and, beyond, the sky,
It is the color of dreams and faeries,
The color of a sorrowful goodbye,
A reminder of hope and gaiety,
The crushing glare of queens and rulers high,
A rarity that's powerful yet sweet,
Now is for us but was for the elite.

This is an Ottava Rima: An Italian poem with 8 lines of iambic pentameter with an abababcc rhyme scheme. I don't know why I chose purple. My favorite color is yellow. :/

    This is so pretty! It makes me picture all the different shades of purple and consider its nuances. Ooh it would be so cool if you did this for other colours too!
