The name is Black

Invisible in the spectrum,
Yet encompassing all hues

Radiating darkness,

And absorbing light.

The colour of the night sky,

And the galaxies beyond.

The dark matter,

Floating amidst the corpuscles.

The ebony embers,

That still retain the spark.

The staple of the goth kids,

That defines the look.

The lustrous mane,

Adorning thine head.

The vindictive pursuit,

That turns the heart stone.

The achromatic images,

That speak of a bygone era.

The justification for many a war,

And the reason why humanity won.

The feathers of the Raven,

That boast of its wit.

The things negative,

And those not so

The name is Black,

Heuristic for a lot.

  1. not just a blog, but a piece of literature. Very nicely written.
    A forgotten role of black: much needed rest
    Light gets far too much credit for all things good, when in reality they are just two parts of one whole, incomplete without the other.
    Beautiful piece
