Black and White in Color

At times – tough times,
Black and white exists
Clearly without bleeding
Of color, frivolousness
Loses velocity, deep breaths
Entomb smiles, hidden
Intertwined like branches
Of trees seen in starkness,
Birthday suits, showing
Wear are strong still yet
To venture in real world noir.

    black and white
    no color just neutral
    no direction – no choices
    shadow of life
    awaiting to be colored
    by a loving artist’s hand
    until then
    awaiting – hibernating
    life seems suspended
    yet, my heart
    continues to beat

    ❤ Bastet

    Black and White
    With light & no light.
    Bounded away the rainbow from sight
    Highlighting the dams of life.
    Waiting for the breaking of lines
    red, yellow, blue, green…
    …colors of the rainbow,
    await inside the contrasts
    of Black & White.
