Purple Tide

Purple Tide (A Splash of Red With a Hint of Blue)

crimson is my name | in shades of ethereal blue
but you can call me red | find me lost in heady tomes
fiery passion is my game | reflecting on absolute truths
i charge full force ahead | i call the universe my home
though some may think me | curious…it is key
impetuous and moody | the thing that gives life meaning
i plot my course instinctually | analyzing what i see
you’ll never find me brooding | digging deeper, dreaming
i trust my heart | life’s a journey after all
rush toward the flame | embrace it like a fool
crimson is my name | in shades of ethereal blue

A Cleave Poem (to be read in 3 parts: 1st column/2nd column/straight across) seemed apropos given my affinity for two of the “tides” described in this week’s prompt for MindLoveMiserysMenagerie Sunday Writing Prompt. I gravitated toward the colors red and blue…making me purple, of course. Read about the other colors HERE. Red and blue is described below.

Blue represents wisdom, insight, and enlightenment. It is the tide most often associated with philosophers and mystics but it can also represent the madmanmadwoman. This tide basically applies to anyone who seeks truth and to expand the mind and spirit. If you feel that the meaning of life is growthevolution/enlightenment you might be blue! Some possible adjectives: wise, insightful, curious, open-minded, cerebral, bookish, logical, analytical, reflective, deep.

Red represents passion, emotion, and pathos and is often associated with artists of various types, revolutionaries, and zealots. People with a red tide strive to live life to the fullest and to follow their heart wherever it may lead, for better or worse. Some possible adjectives: erratic, feisty, petulant, creative, impetuous, moody, passionate, instinctive, exciting.

you’ve been warned

Franz_Marc-In_the_Rain(Im_Regen)_(1912)

when planning for a lovely stroll,
with dog in tow,
to play some fetch
at river’s edge

take care to notice red dawn skies
-word to the wise-
you might regret
the plans you’ve set

if you ignore the coming storms
when you’ve been warned
you’ll feel the pain…
relentless rain.
