As winged words flutter by,
I capture them on paper.
And paint my soul
in iridescent hues.

I capture them on paper
these colours of the Milky Way
in iridescent hues.

They sparkle and dance,
these colours of the Milky Way;
pregnant, with anticipated radiances.

They sparkle and dance,
and show me where I stand
pregnant, with anticipated radiances.

They excite my spirits,
and show me where I stand
As winged words flutter by.

Violet Delight 

With the power of violet panties
under my skirts,
I tiptoe beyond  
the silent years.
 
With the power of violet panties
I dance across
piano keys,
violet with bliss.
 
With the power of violet panties
(wash separately in
cold water) I’m
violet with believing.
