Lavender -- Challenge Poem


What does red and blue make?

Red and blue make purple they say
A violet hue akin to
Field of lavender, beams your way

Hands of red amid hands of blue
Each has a story of its own
Telling it silently to you

None is alike, not all made known
Everything you can imagine
Children all, each a precious stone

Together sweet and sour wine
Vulnerable, at play today
Squint a little, lavender lined

where she tells of Lavender Fields and the Lavender Plant.  Then she tells us to write as we are inspired by reading her page.

Note:  The hands are actually prints of adults, workers at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in the Woodlands, Texas.  Click on the picture and you can see their individual signing.  In my poem they would be hands of children, each representing a child, as that is what I can "see".

The thought of blue and red mixing to purple of lavender when squinting my eyes.. I like that thought - maybe it could be used more in politics too ;-)

I like the pattern ~ Specially admire this part:

Hands of red amid hands of blue
Each has a story of its own
Telling it silently to you

I volunteer two days a week in a kindergarten. I see the vast renditions of uniqueness every time I step onto that campus. You illuminate some of the best aspects of that setting.
