What is the absence of life? Poem

Is white absence of color?

White is absence of color if it is pure.

Yet one is said to be in darkness when dead.

Death has no color if one is gone,

Yet within the grey of white

Life lingers

Do we celebrate nothing?

When we celebrate the dark?

Or do we celebrate something,

When we celebrate white,

White is seen brightest in the light,

Black shadows making objects look smaller.

The grey is the area of forgiveness,

The darkness only comes in an end of ends,

Yet lightning strikes sounding fierce

Showing white and greys calling to life,

Let the soul linger in the light, no end to the end.
