W is for Wallow

For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.

Today is April 26th   and the Welcome   letter W


Today we have a poem from The Bench

Deep purple

at the centre of my core.

Dark, mysterious,

Wish for yellow and light,

or red and bright.

But just wallow in purple.

I know it’s not healthy.

The purple has engulfed me.

Am happy to wallow

in my purple core

for now.


Waiting to wade through your wonderful writes

Have you ever just wanted to wallow?

  1. Very nice Sue! Love that I get to read a lot from you today as I catch up 🙂

  2. Purple does sound like a wallowing color! Well done.

  3. I love the colour… so wallowing in purple has given a different perspective… has me thinking about it in a new light… great poem!

    Ha, today I’m definitely in a wallowing mood :p Great piece!

  5. Many a times I wallow in my purple mood. I so know the feeling. But with my son running all over and always needing something, can’t wallow too long. This is great, Susan.

  6. ah, wallowing in a bad feeling for a short time is much better than trying to shove it away and letting it fester and seep into a negative attitude… a reason for everything!
    and a lovely purple poem =)

    Oh yes. People often remark upon my sunny personality, but that’s only because I’ve made peace with my sad side and mostly let it come out when I’m alone.

      no one can be perky all the time. It’s not human. And it’s ok to let friends see the wallow side of you too 😀

    Yes, sometimes I do want to wallow. But I think of wallowing as wallowing in regret, sadness, and the like. Can you wallow in something positive?
