continuing As My Sister Lay Dying.

 

The Romans liked purple
gave it Royal status
edged their fine woollen togas
with its brilliant colour
for which thousands of shellfish died.
 
My sister stirs and opens her dark sunken eyes.
Sorry, she says
I must have dropped off.
She gazes at the crocheted rug
and holds the purple yarn between bloodless fingers.
You are getting on with it.

She cherished that purple rug. I'm so glad you brought it to her.

Reviewed by John Domino 5/3/2013
Interesting piece you wrote here Laurel. I never gave much thought about the Roman colors and the costly lives of all those shellfish. One can only hope they were used in soups and a part of the Roman diet as well.

Yours in the love of Christ,

John Michael Domino
