Purple Poesy [repost]

Purple dragon wings mythical fantasy

A blend of blue and red,
Peace and passion,
Created me;
Violet, the most luxurious
And spiritual
Of all the colors,
Is my name.

I am the creative canvas
For a fertile imagination.
Royalty knows me well;
Byzantium nobles stroll
Through castles,
Resplendent in plum.
Robes of velvet and satin
Are spangled with gold,
As befits my elevated status.

My color graces soft orchid petals,
Kissed with dewdrops,
Trembling in the early dawn.
Lavender and lilac
Fill your rooms with love.
Amethyst crystals
Glitter in volcanic bowls,
While diamonds grow green
Over their superior beauty.

I am the hue of dragons,
Fierce and loyal,
Soaring across the sky:
Their heliotrope wings
Outshine the moonlight.
True blue is married
To danger’s red flame;
Come closer… I won’t bite.

I am mysterious and intuitive,
Feminine, elegant,
Yet earthy as an eggplant.
Yes, I am arrogant,
But it is tempered with honor.
I am the color of wisdom,
Which also makes me the shade
Of mourning.
