The Colour Black

Have you noticed how poetic the colour black is?
It’s the colour of the night sky
as a blanket of stars smothers daylight.
It’s the colour of ash
as a finger of fire traces the scars of the earth.
It’s the only colour you can see
through the darkness as it suffocates you.
It’s the colour of the ink
used to write this very poem.
