purple-urple

Mish at dVerse Poetics inspires us with the lovely art of Beverly Dyer…and today I did paint one wall of our living room “purple suede”!


 

paint a purple wall
pluck a purple plume
pick a purple wildflower
play a purple tune

write a purple poem
wear a purple dress
climb a purple mountain
make a purple mess

eat a purple plum
fly a purple kite
plant a purple garden
dream a purple night

tired of my purple riot?
let’s do violet!

Red Cedar by Emily Carr

beware of three bears

see them growling!

 

is Red in the hood?

big bad wolf out there

hear him howling!

 

scare Peter but good

should tinkle bells wear

stop them prowling!

Linda tends dVerse Poets Pub today and invites us to write ekphrastic poetry inspired by the artwork of Jackie Hurlbert…


 

sassy young redhead named penelope
decides who in the world she wants to be

dark ravens perch upon each shoulder
speaking words that make girl feel bolder

independent defiance paints hot lips
her arms cross tight or hands on hips

fiery moods untamed, doesn’t give a care
determination steeps in eyes that stare

penelope’s ravens sing rebellious song
this teen believes ravens make her strong!

(but raven words may spell trouble
and raven beaks may burst her bubble)

Wheels
whizzing
on steep
downhill
bike path
trying to
avoid fallen
acorns and
slick goose
droppings
which may
skid tires
and flip a
rider over
handlebars
splashing
into cool
water and
algaed
scum of
Cooter’s
Pond…
may also
disturb
turtles or
crawdads
buried in
muddy
bottom

Whooaah!
