Where's the purple?

The imagery is interesting, but I really don't understand this poem.
Well, the color purple isn't mentioned out loud. The reason I called it "a peculiar purple" is because it's a different kind of purple. Purple can stand for royalty or "imperial: belonging to or befitting a supreme ruler." What I'm trying to get across is that God clothes us with royalty and blessings; we are His, and are regarded with splendor. He himself is royal and a supreme ruler. Holding victory in His hands, and willing to clothe us in the finest when we return home to Him; He will fight for us if we are but willing. That's what I get from it; from reading about the definitions of "purple" and when looking back at the prodigal son. I hope this helps :)God is sovereign.
