purple

I like all colors,
but purple is lower on the list than most.
And so I was less than thrilled about this month's installment
until I remembered the lines
"For purple mountains' majesty/above the fruited plain"
from "America the Beautiful.

Ah, ha.
I have always loved the way mountains
layer away, fainter and fainter
into the distance.
And so I found my inspiration.

What? Less than thrilled with the color choice? LOL How awesome that you still joined in the fun! I love how you found your inspiration. Such a pretty piece. The layers of purple making the mountains is beautiful!

That is beautiful. Now that song is in my head, but I love it, so I will be humming it all day long.
