I am Purple

Once I wrote a poem for a get-in-touch-with-your-inner-artist book. The activity was to pick a color and write a few sentences describing yourself in the first person. This is the poem I wrote:
I am Royal. I am Elegant. I am fun, crazy, exciting. I am purple. Delicate fragile orchid. Strong, unrefined thistle. I am a violet, small and beautiful and prolific and useful. I am grapes, succulent and juicy. And wine, complex and warming. I am Mom's afghan, cozy and soft. I am the evening sky, like velvet, stunning, beautiful. I am purple.
A few years later in another attempt to get in touch with my inner artist, I created this poster.
