Poetry On Odyssey: Ode To Purple

Poetry On Odyssey: Ode To Purple

Purple, purple, purple everywhere!

Poetry On Odyssey: Ode To Purple

Classical music sheets lying on the chairs

Beethoven and Bach played with conviction

Jazzy Canon in D or Ode to Joy

Inviting the brave, the noble, and kind

Slow waltzes throughout hallways in rhythms

Rich and middle couples’ feet in halls,

Step one, step two, step three and four, rocking

Calm, cool, loyalty and compassion ensued

Warm soapy aroma or sexy wine smell

In bathtubs, relaxing with a cup in hand,

Homey, cozy bed, in a little space,

A comforting fragrance leads to spirits

Nutritious grapes in fruit baskets eaten

My aunt’s house on Thanksgiving Day’s feastings

Sweet, light, airy, crunchy bunches of heaven

Grapes in pancakes, grapes in pies, breakfast sensation,

“The Color Purple” theatrical debut show,

Based on Alice Walker’s novel plots

Friends hand in hand, entertainment on a carefree Saturday afternoon

Matching purple clothes, a sign of enduring friendship

England’s Buckingham’s big gates stood,

Royal palaces, luxury dining are possible travel goals

Summertime, or study abroad, my friends

Ambition, royal obsessions from afar

Pope Francis winning disillusioned hearts everywhere

Saint Peter’s Square balcony preaching love

Gentle, kind, accepting man representing Jesus,

Spiritual calming effect on his “flock”

Butterflies surface in springtime, perching

In flower’s petals sucking up nectar’s milk,

Carefree wings beat to the song of Mother Nature

Freestyle dances in the sky, brightening up the day

Word games buzzing up the competition,

Scrabble, what’s the word again, my friend?

Adults and children alike, take pleasure

Stringing tons of words together in families

Self-motivation books aim to inspire,

“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens”

Teens, adults, or just people looking for a higher self-esteem,

Life is too short to dwell on the small things,

Purple, the color of creativity,

Sweet souls waiting to make impact on others

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
