Hazy Shade of Purple

Running through the spotted mist
Enfolded in a violaceous haze
Tripped on a twisted berry root
Falling to her grave

Down, down the rabbit hole
No one could hear her screams
Through the heliotrope
Landing on the rocks of amaranthine

Slowly, she emerged
From her sea of wine
What she thought
Wasn't what it seemed
It had all been a lavender dream

on an acid-trip! I like this one for the shaded grades of purple. It only vaguely makes sense and that's ok, because it was sooo much fun! ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

It was really fun to write and I guess my love of Lewis Carroll snuck out. I am enjoying writing outside the box and being a little less serious :) I didn't realize there were so many cool words for purple.

I have many literary influences and Lewis Carroll is one. the synonyms for purple were so much fun and this was the result.

It’s just great. I can’t really find anything I don’t love about this. I love purple. So much magic and emotion.

Sweet job,
Tim

The synonyms for purple were so much fun (I love purple too)! I have been playing with words for each color and just seeing what happens and the results have been fantastic!
