Black White Light

Where is that storm I summoned
To keep me on my heels
From whom others retreat
As I instead advance

One with fierce energy
That will match intellects
Against all odds draw near
Whose heart I need not fear

Perch

Flowers
They’ve suffered at my hand
Frost
Did I discount them
Never
I, as would many others
Nurturers
Set them again in the sun
Believing
They would continue
Blooming

Black

Silence
Rings out year after forlorn year
From space, that sacred place
So I stay mourning

Yet, I send signals
Probes, seeking life
To every corner
This curious heart and mind must

Silence
I know it’s name, oh, but it’s heart
Darkened for what reason
‘Tis unknown to me

Pulled

I watch 
As from afar 
You count them
The near-missed curves
And the angles
Maddeningly calculate

Keep staring 
Blankly
Into the tonic
While the true
Keeps calling you 
From your virtual walk

White

I maintain

I could have done without the black

I had to look a second time, and then a sixth

I see it still in the most unremarkable places

I looked upward and Life appeared

I saw its red against the White

I feel the black come over me

I eye up red against the white
