A Free Verse Club Challenge

A chapter in the book LOVE OF NATURE


by Bucketlist

Purple is nature's gift
Her blooms, her fruits
Moorland heather for dyes
Her purple skies

Dire warning of dominance
Storms will make turmoil,
thrashing rains in abundance .
Bring vengeance

Used by artists on canvas
In song "Purple Rain"
"The Color Purple" movie
Drama and hurt shared

Red and blue make purple
A painter's brush strokes
Softly create images as
In the mirrored state

Foul vapors float while
The planet sees its own reflection
Spherical in reality
While water distorts the shape

This planet is doomed
Purple pollution rises to the sky
Ominous clouds are hovering
One day pollution will kill us
