Life is in pieces of black and white Like a chessboard The moonlight shines through darkness of night Like a barcode ~ Noah chose a raven, then dove Bad luck or peace? A bride in white dressed in pure love Black mourn decease ~ The penguin and the zebra The snow leopard White tiger and the panda Monochrome weird ~ Milk boils when it is heated Tar melts when hot Cotton flies, wool is seated Coal heats the pot ~ I print all of these lines In jet black ink On a white sheet designed To make you think 02/21/17

Jo, this was fantastic. I loved the comparisons in this piece and to be honest, your poem made me think so much as I read, the first time through I didn't even realize it rhymed, then on my second reading I caught it and thought, now how cool is that.
