Archive for the tag “purple”

a purple kind of day

she stood silent in the walk-in closet
shoulder-length hair wet & combed
clothed in white panties & bralette
finger pressed against lower lip
casually calculating multiple
color combinations

there was no question is was a
purple kind of day
that pious & royal & mysterious
intermediate color
created by combining red & blue
and a little bit of sunshine

only one choice remained
what complementary color would
best bring out her wistful mood
whether traditional yellow
or better yet a softer pink
accentuating her rare allure

march two thousand twenty
