White is the color of
Beautiful

Like a dove
Soaring over a forgotten mountain lake
Snow
Blanketing the landscape
In a soft white
Paradise
Essence of pine

Like a cello’s music
Sweeping the night
Alone
But that makes it even more
Serene

Like a white sail
Rising up a mast
Against a coral blue sea
Waving about
Taking
You there

Like a patch
Of white roses
Among the ashes
The start
Of new life
