Purple is so many things.
Purple is my favorite color.
Vibrant purple, gold and white are the colors of
my favorite NFL Football team the Minnesota Vikings.
Purple is a secondary color
made from combining the primary colors of red and blue.
Purple is the most beautiful and wonderful color in the rainbow,
and is such a beautiful color that God makes purple appear in the rainbow twice.
Indigo and violet are displayed magnificently in the sky
each time God paints a rainbow.
Purple reminds me of my
favorite singer Prince
and the color of the purple rain.
Purple is the color of lilacs that will soon fill the trees
with a magnificent vision and fragrance of beauty.
Grayish purple was the color of lint I removed from my dryer lint trap this morning.
Brilliant shades of purple are the colors I see
each time I look up from my computer
and see the beautiful arrangement of flowers
my mother sent me,
after my ankle surgery.
A deep dark purple has settled in the bottom of my foot
from my slightly swollen ankle
from the surgery
I had over a week ago.
Purple is the color of our veins
showing our heart is pumping our blood to and from our vital organs
so we can continue to live this beautiful life on earth.
Purple was the color I saw for years
on the large purple vein,
staring and glaring at me,
from the crease and fold in my left arm,
that has now turned into a deep hole
from the years of self injurious cutting behavior.
Each time I used my scissors to cut deeper into my skin,
making it bleed,
and distract me,
and relieve me
temporarily from my severe internal mental pain
caused from the severe symptoms and pain from my bipolar disorder.
Bright purple is the color of matching hospital scrubs
we all had to wear as imprisoned inpatients
inside the psychiatric hospital
where I used to have to live
way too often.
I am blessed
to not have to live there,
