Black?

A superimposition
Of the colours of life
A definition of density
A notion of authority
Of fear and formality

Deemed to be elegant
And ultimate sophistication
Yet powerful and reserved
Sometimes it denotes danger
It is an absence of colour
Yet gives depth to all colours.

Black is known to hide the obvious
An achromatic colour without hues
Known to absorb than let go.
Its deep dark and mysterious
Can be restrictive and restraining.

Often not just worn for style
It protects from interference. Perhaps it helps to retreat behind black
When facing a tough time in life
Life a personal crisis or illness.

It then becomes an anchor
In support that gives time
To heal as it protects with its opaqueness
And helps bridge through
The deepest insecurities.

Stark truth reveals
The darkest of dark
Unseen matters of energy
Exists in understanding
The yet unknown.

For every presence
Has a reason to be.
In the flow of life
Darkness and light
Play their valuable parts
As black and white.

There is an intriguing and enigmatic aspect in black. Is it because of its intensity to capture attention? Or is it because it has the ability to bring forth and define anything and make a statement. The above thoughts are an ode to all the shades of life in the making.

In this two-part series, I explore Black and White consecutively and its strength in interconnectedness…What are your perspectives? Do feel free to share.
