shadow

white

not despite Webster wanting in color

but a color

in its own right

it contains

all the rays

of the spectrum

combined

is sparkling

counterpoint and foil

makes

other colors sing

touchstone

caesura

that refreshes

mind and eye

watercolorists

know white space

speaks

louder than paint

cannot

be simulated

this innocence

once lost

can never be

restored

poised above

canvas or page

the hand

does well to

tremble
