Light would be an empty sky
No clouds or color for us to spy

Without whiteness nothing would reflect
With the eyes no objects could we detect

Blindness in a world of light
What to do without your sight?


The core of all color in this world 
Around it is which all colors curled
It begins with whiteness in the light
That joy of seeing a bird take flight


The spectrum exists
Because whiteness is in light
Light stops existence?
