My granddaughter loves the color pink
she says purple in such a cute way
for an almost three year old
she knows her colors very well
and enjoys sitting with me
circles and swirls
which she describes
as suns and the world.
What innocence and love
absolutely a gift from above.
I want a purple universe for her
and I hope she (every once in a while)
bumps into some pink too.
When I think of today’s world
the cruelty and violence
bigotry and indifference
bullying and hateful behaviors.
I fear for the future of our children
I hope the universe is purple one day
with a little bit of pink.
and full of mindful love.
