purple patch

on that golden acre
of waving grass
I swung my purple sword
it flashed blue fire
against the dazzling blue
oh what a glorious hue!

so tender and true
as a princess I left
a trail of tears
so the purple queen
could find me
amidst the aurora

the lazy housewife
rounded up Jacobs cattle
on black beauty
for the czar
was a wizard
who’d put jack on ice

so these intriguing names
will gain some fame
in poems woven of fantasy
bringing colour to life
for those imbued in strife
igniting imaginations!

d’Verse, vegetable names, Sarah

  1. I love this, Kate! I recognize some of the plant names! And you’ve woven them into a wonderful imaginative creative fantasy! 🙂

    Oh! and the photo! Love your climbing viney plant! Beautiful!

    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…I love the shades of purple in nature! 🙂

  2. Great use of the prompt words, Kate – you pulled a whole fantasy out of them. It was the final verse that got me, though – it felt like a personal gift to me in this time of lockdown and restraint. We can still travel in our imaginations. Lovely stuff.
