the color of creation
in its simplest form,
there when

deepest black,
darkest chocolate,
the tip of a pencil,
the steps of a people.
holding power in his hand,
he conquers a void
blank and virgin
and his masterpiece
chants its praise
for beauty bestowed
and genius granted.
he listens to
the shouts rise
to the midnight sky,
with a content smile
and a gleam in his eyes,
knowing what he's done is right,
saying this is
love, this is
life, this is
