31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 08: "Purple."

Proverbs 31:22 - She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.


Purple is one of my favorite colors.  I enjoy wearing purple, writing with a purple pen, creating with purple.

Purple is one of the royal colors.  Along with scarlet, it's used several times in the Bible.
Purple is flowers in spring, summer and fall.  I saw a purple Crepe Myrtle at Weaver's municipal building.  I had no idea they came in that color. 

I'm an 80's girl, so you knew I was going to bring up Purple Rain.

I'm a southerner, so purple hull peas comes to mind.

The purple tint to an early morning sky brings me joy during my early morning shift at the Y.  The traces of lavender in the sunset sky is one of God's most beautiful paintings of the day.

This prompt makes want to go paint a whole whack of purple flowers.



  1. Iris are one of my favorites. Growing up my mom always had an enormous bed of purple iris that people used to walk or even drive by and admire. Sadly I did or inherit her green thumb. I do have a new 101 list almost ready to post : )

    1. I took that Iris picture on the Ladiga Trail earlier this year. Those flowers were gorgeous. I have a green thumb, but nowhere to use it right now. Someday.
