The Violet Hour (Poem)

 

Purple or violet assists those who seek the meaning of life and spiritual fulfillment – it expands our awareness, connecting us to a higher consciousness. For this reason it is associated with transformation of the soul…In the meaning of colors, purple and violet represent the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions.”

*   *   *   *   *

My life is broken glass,

Encased in violet wax.

Inevitably, the passive hand of Fate

Lit the wick of my life,

And the sharp crystal floated,

Ready to cut.

Icebergs that drown the Helpful

And destroy Loving Affections.

No, these are not allowed;

Not at first.

Will you bleed for my life?

How will you navigate these

Treacherous waves when I am lost?

I descend beneath the glass,

Only to glance upon my reflection.

I break past the jagged mirror,

Pushing my way towards the Flame.

I must protect it and keep it bright,

So that the blaze may disintegrate

My surroundings and perhaps

Cause the glass to sink to the bottom.

And I hope, for everything that is in

The Fate’s design,

That the shattered reflectors remain

Submerged and always underneath Me.

    I cannot take my eyes of the picture, its clear what it is, yet at the same time, it is almost an abstract, truly beautiful.

      Yes it is. But also one if creativity and discovery. It is my second favorite color, and the mood I’ve been feeling in. xxx

    Ooo the first thing I think of when I think of violet is my other half’s violet wand. Man I love electroplay.

    This picture is super neat and almost abstract looking :)

      Thank you Bunny. I haven’t tried electroplay, but my interest is peaked 😉 xxx

    I like how the purple & close up angle gives the image an abstract feel…I love purple. :)

    The words are beautiful and I agree with the comment above that the image is has a strong feeling of abstract act about it. As for purple, my wardrobe is packed with all different shades of it!
