Purple Makes Me Cry

Long ago, purple was only for the rich. No one else could wear it, not a purple stitch. It was just for kings and rulers of the world. They had all the gold, the rubies, and the pearls. But all around this gorgeous globe, purple could be found. On flowers, clouds, and insects--why, purple does abound! It seems to me a gift from someone way up high, Saying we're ALL special. ~ That's why purple makes me cry. January 19, 2019 Purple Premier Poetry Contest Kevin Shaw, sponsor 2nd Place

"Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was adorned like one of these." ~ I can pay no higher compliment than this. Beautiful. :)

Thank you Timothy. I am so glad you liked it. As to the robe that was a detail I had passed over. It makes the scene more vivid in my mind.

Sweet! Enough to make a big man cry. Yep, all the Roman Emperors in the world, can't corner the market on 'special'.
