Contrast


Expect to get contrast.
From a point of view encompassing it.
Because there is contrast,
Everywhere there and here where few may sit.
Since there is contrast,
No matter who resists...
To admit,
Denying its existence.
As it provides,
A doing to bring some and not more...
A shown to be known benefit of this.

Does a contrast provide any benefit.

A contrast...
Provides a different flavor,
To contrast..
A changing of an image quick,
One depicts to predict...
As being,
Quite different.

But how can a contrast from black to white,
Provide...
A benefit.
And how can a contrast from white to black,
Provide...
Any benefit.
And how can a stark contrast provide...
A people remaining satisfied,
To live and be comforted...
With this.

A contrast...
Provides a different flavor,
To contrast..
A changing of an image quick,
One depicts to predict...
As being,
Quite different.

But how can a contrast from black to white,
Decide...
Who benefits.
And how can a contrast from white to black,
Decide...
There's a benefit.
And how can a stark contrast provide...
A people remaining satisfied,
To live...
And be comforted by this.

How can a people rely to decide,
That any stark contrast...
Is welcomed to benefit.

Extreme is a contrast!

And how can a people decide to rely,
That a stark contrast...
For them is a benefit.

Does a contrast,
Stimulate a benefit.
Does a contrast,
Stimulate a benefit.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
