Multi-Hued Humanity Meditates on

The Balance of Black and White


Sacred Black,

dark heart of womb and soil

where all of life first takes its form,

how have You been made the stench 

of evil and subservience

rumor of contamination

degraded by small minds 

bent on domination


But portal to a larger truth

mind unshackled leads us past

the weary scuffles for title and food

Quiet as a seed we glimpse 

majestic Black and White,

heedless of our judgement

embrace our world

in their vast eternal dance
