Allium

Purple fireworks
Bursting from a long green stem
Allium in bloom.

Grapes

Bursting on the tongue
Juicy purple amethysts
A stem of black grapes.

Pansies

First flowers of spring
Pansies raise purple faces
Squinting at the sun.

Blueberries

Blue blooms on purple
The tangy taste of July
Drives back the March wind.

Crocuses

Fragile crocuses
White and purple chalices
Brimming with saffron.

Kale

Green and purple leaves
Whorled into a labyrinth
Ornamental kale.

Veteran’s Day

“We were soldiers once”:
Purple-hearted red poppies
Nod and bow their heads.

The first line is from A. E. Housman, “More Poems,” poem 36.
