Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today we end our journey along the colors of the rainbow. Our last color is violet (or purple). This is the color of the seventh chakra, It's the crown-chakra.
Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.

I see the violet color
hides her red eyed face
cold and warm colors
fused to deep violet
staring deep into my eyes
the rainbow in the valley
