Surrounded by the sight of lavender bewitches me.

"I Love Purple" September 2, 2000, (Saturday)
Dear Diary: I purchased Shiso seeds and Lavender at Walmart today and started a window-box outside my bedroom. What a lovely sight! I adore purple! It is the color of Kings and Queens.The color purple relates to the imagination and spirituality. It is the union of body and soul creating a balance between our physical and our spiritual energy.
Purple or violet assists those who seek the meaning of life and spiritual fulfillment - it expands our awareness, connecting us to a higher consciousness. And now, I scribble something from my soul...
Soon Shiso leaves, their bulbous richness spark
and mingle with my Lavender outside
and somewhere in the dark there murmurs lark
who promises a song for me tonight.
Oh, listen to the wonders of our world
when nature slumbers, asking us to join
the beautiful; the quiet of the swirl
of clouds that gather, happy to purloin.
But now my eyelids droop; my pen slips by
and I am swept into a solitude.
With sounding of the lark comes purple sigh
as shadows deepen
kiss the page
