Black, White, and Brown

black and white couple

If you look at the white on this page I am not really white

I’m more of a light tan – and my wife is beautifully

brown. I have no idea why she loves

my pale skin, my grey beard.

And our children are a wonderful shade

of tan – proud of two races.

      

Perhaps we are all – just different shades

of brown and there are no

black and white –

only light and dark brown.

      

We are all wonderfully made,

and love

is the greatest gift.

Purple, Yellow, and Orange

When we get to heaven will there be purple, yellow, and orange flowers?

I sure hope so, we are indeed a reflection of infinity

and it is recorded that people of all colors

will be there, with total peace

thanking God

for each other, but I hope

we have flowers too.

      

And may all people have peace, here and now.

I love the different colors

don’t you?

Free from the Hate

Maine and More 496

I grew up near the corn,

a state,

where they slap you on the back,

celebrating their “whiteness”,

imagining,

their superiority.

It is only by His mercy,

that I could see through,

their confederate banner waving,

monsters lived in their hearts,

while the Klan lived with the fire,

of hatred burning,

waiting for their turn,

 searching for a voice,

It is only by His mercy,

that I saw the truth of a mountain,

the peace of the woods,

His love, in creation,

and people,

cultures from around the world,

began speaking,

a young heart wandering in the desert,

to this day, I love India.

It is only by His mercy,

that I’m in my right mind,

loving,

instead of hating,

It’s only by His mercy.

White and Brown

Two Hands

There is no such thing as a white person,

if I hold a white piece of paper in the mirror,

I am not white, I’m a lighter shade of brown,

with a few drops of pink mixed in.

some are beige or tan,

some are a medium brown,

and some are dark, but all are beautiful,

and white is only beautiful, if next to other colors,

like snowflakes against a night sky.

Adam and Eve never had any prejudice,

help us God, to feel connected to one another,

from the same source,

interrelated,

human beings,

infused with color.

A beautiful rainbow family with twin girls.
A beautiful rainbow family with twin girls.
