Purpureus Realm

Embraced by Purpurite Reveries

Every night at midnight

The purple clouds came out

To dance with the blushing sky


Beneath the periwinkle clouds

Dolphins flew majestically

Synchronised aerobatics


Marionettes being pulled

Though the lavender haze

Starfishes twirled skyward


Seahorses gravitised by the moon

Formed a vertical magenta chain

Hooking tails to snouts


Nymphs swirled up the chain

Raced to touch the moon

Left a glittery trail of lilac glow


The moon turned burgundy

Smiled and sparkled jubilantly

Sashayed emitting lightings


Amethyst ripples on the surface

The sky dropped its diamonds

Waves celebrated the reunion

    Starfish, seahorses, nymphs, oh my! What a joyous magical dance they performed rising up from the sea to the moon! Beautifully crafted, enchantingly evocative. Makes me think it could really happen...the sea is so mysterious at night.

    The Midnight moon always gives me comfort. On a full moon night, a clear sky with countless stars and cushions of clouds. It's heaven for me.
