Inspiration out of this post by Amber. A tribute to the most uncommon of the nature's colours, and for some unclear reason, a source of obsession for me. The image is supposed to be a marine snail spitting his ink, or sommmething. With that ink was produced the expensive colour that was used by the royalty and the powerful; but the poem is much deeper than that.

Purple —is fashionable twice—
This season of the year,
And when a soul perceives itself
To be an Emperor.

Emily Dickinson, 980.

Easy: you belong to the royalty, (one day come to us all to act in complete consequence and responsability of our colours). ;-)
