Black Beauty


Black Β is the coal which provides heat

Black is the night where one can see the beauty of the stars

Black is the pencil lead which first introduced me to art of handwriting

Black is the tea that soothes me

Black are the olives in the numnum pizza

Black are my eyes which can see the good in you.

For Jingle Poetry on Color, Rainbow, and Spring

Black rainbow I see

But it won’t dishearten me

I have faith in Light

For Thursday Poet Rally. Thank you soooo much!

    You know, black (in pigments like paint) is the combination of all the other colors! (In light, white is the combination of all the others). My favorite line in this is: “Black are the olives in the numnum pizza” I LOLed because I LOVE black olives on my pizza! πŸ˜€ Thanks for the smile, spoon!

      The mind can put color to anything but the challenge is to see a positive color πŸ™‚ Yes to black olives in pizza and pasta! Enjoy the day!

    This is really a great poem. You never see anything positive said about black but this makes it a beautiful color. I love the color personally and now have more reasons to do so. Thanks for sharing.

      One can see black heart, green mind, blue moments,…but somebody else can choose to see black courage, green revolution, blue sky,… Have a blessed day Cheryl πŸ™‚
