Whiteness

Without it we don’t see light and shade
Balanced it doesn’t blind us with its light
Creatively it is has influence on the hue
Its absence brings darkness without a clue
No moon to admire from high in the sky
Or light at night to guide us on our way
The impact of it on our life is profound
Everywhere you look it can be found
You see it on every page and screen
Surrounding every part of our being
It’s here right now, even as you read
Hugging the space around each letter and word 
……………..Is the ………………….
‘Whiteness’ as is commonly referred


Written for the 'Whiteness' contest

    Profound piece! Very much enjoyed it! --it truly does help us with perspective. It helps us see the little things---or rather the BIG impact of things---in life. Absolutely loved this. Thanks for sharing. :) Always, Laura

    As a former graphic designer, I find this write about white right on the money. The white on a page is just as important as the words and images it surrounds! Kudos... love and happy thoughts, Jack xox
