Purple smells like lilacs

and lavender

and grapes

it is the color of the sky

on a warm summer night

lit by the first sprinkling of stars

It tastes like plums

warm off the tree

with the scabs and marks of life

kissing the skin

Purple is the color

of love

of my children

held close to my heart
