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 lightnings


Amethyst ripples on the surface

The sky dropped its diamonds

Waves celebrated the reunion

    Dear Dhar - You had me at "Purpureus" - put that into your translator and see what it comes up with? - *Miss you, are you taking a finger-stretching break from all of your type-tapping - Whew, who could blame you? J-Bud

    This was really beautiful Dharrsheena! I love your use of descriptive language that creates vivid imagery and how it tells such a magical story! I also love your use of personification to create an elegant form of movement for each creature, that feels so realistic but yet so imaginative! This was simply breath taking, I am in awe of your skill with words! 💜
