my passion for purple...

i wish i could explain
what it is about this color
that brings such happiness
to my heart
two big boxes arrived today
majestic batiks by moda
beautiful colors
oranges, greens, blues, yellows
my eyes immediately
gravitated toward
the only purple in the collection
love, love, love it
later in the day
i took sarah to see the new arrivals
mostly to comfort her
after another painful blood draw
in that left arm
i didn't think about the
shirt and hoodie she had changed into after work
until we arrived
and i pulled out the
pretty purple one
to show her
it seemed to have a comforting effect
on my daughter too
