Black and White

Shades of feeling

Etched in the day,

Black and white.

No grey.

Within the all or none is

a dance of layers,

subtle notes, scents

intriguing, tangible.

A twirl.

Vibrant. Red.

Warm. Orange.

Sunny. Yellow.

A pause.

Living. Green.

Calm. Blue.

A dip.

Deep. Indigo.

Surprising. Violet.

What happens if the vibrant tangos with the surprising?

The warm waltzes with the living?

The sunny sambas with the calm?

Color there,

Color where?

So fast, running together

Sounds and sights

Pressed into one

White line,


Carved around

Space, a fresh

Start, waiting

Until the next dance.
