Colour Contrast

 

Red Autumn

Red is red and green is green

And yellow’s another colour

Black changes not, if white declared

Nor even the reverse order

Duck Green

But, what if I don’t know red’s red

Never perceived green’s green

Will colour’s substance, behaviour change

If my ignorance is seen?

Bouquet

Colours will invigorate

Stimulate, enliven;

Or overwhelm, engulf, beset

No matter what I call them

moon white on black 2

Black makes the white so radiant

White shows the black so stark

And Love reveals all that is not

Of Love; all that is dark

Love is love, as Love declares

What love will always be

To give His name to something else

Won’t change that Love is He

Depth

The dark inside is so dark

Its substance can’t be seen.

I think I’ve plumbed the depths

But only One has mastery.

 

The surface is the surface

No matter what the depth I claim.

I must seek the One who searches

Beneath the clutter I have named.

 

The unknown depths of darkness

Can be cleansed and made as snow,

If I will, and ask, surrender

To the One Who sees below.

 

So, I’ll ask the One to search within,

Beneath, below and under

To shine light into the darkness;

Once enjoined, now put asunder
