It’s Never Just Black and White

Grey is a shape
a mood
to sleep
to dream
a blank canvas
a precursor to black
the colour of hope
motes in light
a eunuch’s cloak
a mushroom hunt
morels and caps
is gray for some 
is a cloud
a vapour
a spirit
a far-flung hill
is never just black and white.

  1. Wow! I’m swept away by the contrasts and the enigmatic imagery that somehow between them get at “gray” — Simply brilliant, Misky. Especially this: the colour of hope/pressure-washed/motes in light” – You use the tangible to describe the intangible in such a vibrant way.

  2. I loved this Misky! I am a day late getting around to reading everyone’s work. Really glad I got to read yours, really enjoyable. And you’re right and you are right you are right, life is never just black-and-white. There are so many beautiful and wonderful shades. We all need to appreciate each one of them. BTW I love hunting mushrooms, or I used to when I could walk well, in my fingers weren’t so arthritic. Oh well life goes on. Nice work here, Well written.

  3. Love the changing mood in this…the list shifts just as the color grey has a myriad of shadings between white and black. These words especially resonated with me:
    “s gray for some
    is a cloud
    a vapour
    a spirit
    a far-flung hill
    is never just black and white.”
