white:

3 Apr

white bowl

powerful

pure

soft

snow

harsh winter

blank slate

oblivious

opaque

demanding

simple

bubbly

plain

clean

white

in contrast to color

pale

as in

whitewash

white

directs

blends

runs

condescends

confers

holds

absorbs

light

often

confused with clear

see

white

privilege

use and misuse

see

trust

over

time

~ with love ~

this poem

is for my colleagues who help me daily to understand,

even when my understanding is incomplete,

and for the many friends with whom I’ve collaborated over the years

who do the same.
