Searching for Shade

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #326
Day and Night

"There is a moment in each day when it becomes obvious that day has become night, light becomes dark. The difference is stark, one from the other. But there is that moment where twilight starts to set in, a gray area in between night and day. There is a balance somewhere in the middle. Today, expand your mind: Find your gray area and write it into your poem."


Forever stark in black or white,
how nice it would be to see gray
outside of clouds, shadows of night.
Forever stark in black or white
impulsive acts with no insight.
Love or hate, no pause to survey.
Forever stark in black or white,
how nice it would be to see gray.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
