Orange and Purple Love

Cinful Cinnamon challenged me to write a poem using the words Orange and Purple. So here goes:

Love may remain undefined and nebulous

But persistent are the curious

Of love’s scents and pleasures

Enjoyed and suffered by creatures

Looking for their perfect mate

Ignoring the debate


When love is good

We feel the warmth of orange sunsets

From the behest

Of Gods’ good graces

Smiling with benevolent faces

But when love is bad

We feel the pain of purple bruises

Aching when touched from the curses

Of scorned Gods in their might

Causing us to fight

Dirty and strong with words and acts

That break previous pacts

Of happily ever after

And halting joyous laughter

So when thoughts of love’s orange sunsets come to mind

Remember the pain of purple bruises

That turns bitter — sweet juices

Transforming orgasmic thoughts

Into troubles that Hades brought

Up to those on earth

Singing and dancing with mirth

But let it come to mind

That healing ensues in kind

Here’s a haiku:

Purple and orange flowers

Paint the vast landscape

Temporal beauty and joy

    Well done!
    Alas, I was hoping for a rhyme for orange…

    Dug the haiku too.

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Strange, derange, arrange, … Never thought of rhyming it but you make a good point. This can be another challenge 🙂

  2. The Hook says:

    Way to rise to the challenge – and more!

  3. BRAVO BRAVO!!!!!!! love it. A woman of many talents and facets. um I’m not sure I used that word right but I know what I am trying to say…..
    🙂 Peace

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      You’re too funny Lizzie 🙂 You crack me up!!!

  4. Cinnamon says:

    A lovely poem…..BUT I’m with El on this. I think I read somewhere that there are no words that rhymn with orange or purple. THAT’S why I thought that if ANYONE could do it…it would be YOU.

    But it is still a gorgeous poem.


    The next challenge? Gargle with peanut butter ! LOL

      For Purple:

      Super sleuth Miss Marple
      Wore a woolen coat in purple
      As she hunted for clues
      Of the missing golden muse


      Your violence gave me marks of purple
      This is a prime example
      Of how your love
      Warrants boxing gloves

      And my revenge will put you in a coffin
      When I deliver to you — your comeuppance


      Give me fruits and flowers in orange
      Tis not so strange
      To love such a happy color
      To liven up my grayish pallor


  5. I am such a dork I got one of them thingy ma jiggy things on my tool bar to look words up – it’s pretty much ok that I put it there sooooooo yeah! Multifaceted – not to be confused with

    Beautiful. Also in the future when you want to use purple, I say use “durple.”
    It can be a real word if we all believe, also I let you give it the definition!

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      I love the sound of “durple” 🙂
