Black

The black of the eye
That sees light

The black of ink
That adorns the paper white

The black of the sky
That stars need to shine

The black of the night
That sedates the mind

The black cloud
That pours down as rain

The black coal
That treasures the diamond

The black mud
That brings green to life

The black versus white
That makes white seem white...

The black on the palette
That engulfs all hues

The black of black...
For the serenity it gives...

I like the way you have turned around the "English", particularly religious interplay of black and white around.

the black runs well - esp
the contrasts - but i wonder if
it would scan better without the
"the":

black of the eye
that sees light

black of ink
adorning the paper white

hmmm - to me, this seems just a
shade tighter.

Thanks everyone for all the kind words...

khuto: I agree with you...I was myself a tad uncomfortable with the 'THE' business...I'll give it THE push :)
