Moodboard Monday: Purple

A long while ago, I was tasked with making #moodboards for work. I decided to do some research on the Psychology of colours. It turned out to be an incredibly fun, creatively soothing exercise for me. Not being much in the mood to write of late, I lay in the bath wondering what I could do to inspire some blog posts. One of the things my therapist told me is to remember things that invoke good feelings and repeat them. It was then that I decided to write a series of colour-related posts.

A New Beginning in the Rain

A New Beginning in the Rain

They walk through the park
Friends, Companions, Lovers
The whisper of the rain holds promise
Of crisp, clean, clear things for the future

Fallen Autumn leaves litter the path
Their colours splendorous reminders of riches
The yellow brown ones, myrrh
The red ones, garnets & rubies
The orange ones, citrines

He wonders if the moment is right
The rain begins gets louder
Spurring him on, its cacophonic drum beat in sync
With that of his heart

She is lost in a daydream
As she stares at the river
The smell of newness fills the air
As the rain washes old things away

She turns to find him admiring her
From upon his knees
Longingly, tenderly, affectionately
“I love you darling, marry me!”

The white diamond smiles at her
Its iridescence a sparkling reminder
Of their love, their hopes, their passion
Their open, untainted future

A symphony of water
Continues to play from the sky
Their love, will live forever
In their hearts, it won’t wither

A rainbow of colours
A myriad of emotions
A contract sealed with a kiss
“Of course, I’ll marry you.”

The brilliant rock shines
Even though the sun is hiding
Warmth runs through her
Despite Winter’s warning chill

“Come here and dance with me in the rain”
