Drawing You in Purple

I draw purple contours
to capture your shape,
but lines fail to show
the color of your heart.

I ask for interpretations
of what your heart says,
just as Picasso spoke
to his inspiration.

I’ve seen Fall
as a beginning and ending,
and your presence in purple
shadows past visions.

Mere scratches on paper
portray more than lines,
and projections of you
tell more than words we share.

    I really enjoy poems that incorporate color. Each of us has a special meaning for each color. It's apparent how you feel about purple. Nice work! J
