Off To A Colorful Start

” Look,” my granddaughter said,

pointing to clouds in the  morning sky.

“There’s a lavender chicken

watching us from up on high. 

I know you’re into signs

and portents and stuff, 

but what do you make 

of that piece of fluff?”

” Ah,” I said, looking wise,

“that’s nature warning 

us not to take drugs.”

She looked at me with

rolling eyes and heaved

a long and purple sigh.
