Black and White

Black bird flying in a white sky,
Or white bird flying in a black sky.
Black not giving way to white,
Nor white giving way to black.

What is black but the absence of white?
And what is white but an absence of black?
Alas there are more colours to see,
Red and yellow beckoning to be.

Black is the negation of all colours,
White is the amalgamation of all colours.
Two opposite ends, with nothing in common,
But the emptiness defining this continuum

When will black and white ever learn?
That they can’t do without one another?
Red and yellow wait to be draped ,
In the beauty of that singular gray.

  1. Wow, how beautifully you have portrayed the different colours of life, some dark, some sublime!
