Periwinkle

Dancing around in the lightest of breezes

bringing a spot of colour to parks and gardens

before the frost comes in

the ground you sit in determines your colour

sometimes you’re pink, sometimes you’re purple

but most of the time you’re as blue as the sky above you

and you shore up your fellow flowers

the daffodils and tulips keeping them standing tall

while the breeze of the wind goes through the park

Periwinkle – an acrostic by inkdrop for the coloryourworld challenge

 

Perhaps the most pastel of blues in the garden

every gardener worth his greenfingers knows you for your lavender flowers

reaching out to the morning light of the sun

if there was an apt description

when you’re seen waving in the garden air

it’s the sight of little blue fairies

navigating the gardener to your parent plant

keep looking! – they say, as

little children hunt around the garden border

expecting to see fairies dancing in the wind
