Bronze Star - 6,475 Points (2/2/1981 / kottayam)

Black and white!

Closed my eyes in sigh
An exquisite land of darkness
Darkness that propagates and controls
Impede all the rays on the lane
Absorption of colors to its side
Existence on grilling

Opened the eyes in whisper
There the gauge of rays and hope
Splendid as ocean of milk
Its twist all to its side
Project the charm in alliance
Gentility that guaranteed

White on black shine for a while
Black on white blot always
Scar of life is black shaded
White the dignity of peace and love
Wisdom wears the white gown
But emotions dip it in black shade

Sorrows are faded and shaded
When love and peace fetch its side
Grief will grin for that time
When the tears reach a love dale
It confiscate the peace as a whole
Contradictions are persistent sometimes! ! ! !

    Wisdom wears the white gown
    But emotions dip it in black shade
    Lovely lines but it depends upon the nature of emotions, sometimes emotions make it a rainbow. A beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Thoughtful flow of words....Very true said in few lines.....
    White on black shine for a while
    Black on white blot always
    Our life is often black or white. Both represents opposite nature. Both are the sides of same coin....
    Loved the way you differentiated white and black in this poem. (Report) Reply
