letters of a color wheel

i received this wonderful poem in my inbox this morning. a poetic (indirect) letter from my dear pal. from one color to another. from orange to purple.


purple purple, pal

she embodies purple

in all of its magnificent shades

she is a beacon of iridescent purple

illuminating my orange existence

no wonder

remember when we were kids

and we’d have to learn

about complimentary colours

and make messy colour wheels?


messy little colour wheels

for messy little persons


i was taught that purple and yellow

compliment each other


but she has taught me

that purple and ORANGE

are far more honeyed


i came to my love of purple

away from her


and when i found her again

i bathed in serendipity


for she is everything great

and everything purple”
