American Sentence in Purple

French kisses bruise the sky as I cartwheel through clouds of purple.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Bits of Inspiration: The Colours in a Song

Susie is our host today with a prompt that asks us to experiment with synaesthesia, in particular the colour of music. She has provided links to some songs, from which she asks us to choose one and listen to it. She wants us to visualise the lyrics and music, discover colours and write a poem from the colour wheel of the song, indicating which we have chosen.  For me it could only be Jimi Hendrix with ‘Purple Haze’, and an American sentence, which is a complete sentence of exactly 17 syllables.
