Purple: Exceptional in the Every Day // Day 8

11406299_10155718700235054_3034460389986323155_oPurple is not normal,

It’s royal,


Mighty fine,

Striking me

Like a Scottish mountain caught between magenta and blue

I saw from a train.

I wondered if I had fallen asleep

And awakened in a fairy tale.

I see purple every day

In my daughter’s fleece coat

And sometimes in the flecks of her irises.

Read more poems from 31 days of poetry.
