Quite Whitely

the presence of all light makes white
how joyous that concept can be
to see the virgin cloak of unity born
from a rainbow over a siren sea

the iris of eye opens wide ringed by white
the morning sun burns the black of night
the white of the day has begun

chalk the cliffs of Albion’s shore
above a stormy sea behold
the presence of all light makes white
within the iris of soul

    Old cathode ray television sets used to project red, blue, and green light in varying amounts that would blend in to form different shades of white. When an artist puts paint on his or her palette, a much larger amount of white is used. Good fanciful write, Debbie.
