Purple Morn


I looked for you in shades of pink

and searched for hues of blue.

In every rising sun that set

I searched again for you.


I thought that dreams had come to naught--

reduced to tender shards…

subdued to scars of pink regret

and bruising pangs of blue.


But searching in the morning dawn

mine eye beheld this sight:

One thin line, in purple hue,

that str~et~ch~ed across the sky.


And hope dawned bright in morning light

as realization dawned:

In all my searching I forgot

that pink and blue make purple.


Dreams are not dead, though they may sleep

in hues of violet slumber;

for they awake each morn and eve

to show they’re not forgotten.

Where love has been, its colors never fade, even though sometimes they feel muted -- a bright shade still exists. So nice to be reading you again, too, Cryssa. Wonderfully written, with heart, as always! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

this is beautiful indeed!

This is so lovely and filled with images of color like the northern lights, or the rainbow. I wakened to pitch black mornings waiting for the dawn to come. I have risen to a multicolored morning, where orange, red, and yellow were mixed together to make an artist want to paint. But we are all artists, aren't we, because we paint with our words, so the reader can see. And this is exactly what you have done. We have seen the Purple Morn, that you set before our eyes. Or do I need another cup of coffee? LOL. Just kidding, Cryssa, this is a wonderful poem.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister Barbie.

Dear Cryssa, It is a great day seeing you again in our website. Particularly, writing as before, such a nice poem and again with the spirited colors. "Dreams are not dead, though they may sleep" they are again with you. Love Emile
