Featured Post: The Color Purple – M.A. Morris

Originally published on Braveandrclessblog.com

Brave & Reckless

I dug and planted,
Watered and tended,
Replanted and pruned.

I planted what should be.
I checked the labels
At the nursery.
Yet,
Nothing here blooms
That is the color purple.

I have other colors in abundance,
But not the lilacs or the lavender
Will bloom that shade of purple sky
Seen in the sunrise.

Nothing I do
Can make that
Mythic color true.


I am a retired teacher, enjoying said retirement.  I have been active in the gay and lesbian community since I threw away my Ken doll at the age of four.
