The Color of God

She is black.

You know. You've seen her. Well of course you done lived with her all yo' life. No doubt she been neglected by you, but i can assure you she has not suffered for it. You can see her now - shifting patterns of light and color fading into a deep, vibrant background of velvet black ... right there behind your eyes - go ahead and close yo' eyes and look ... that black inside that is the same black that is the night sky ... the womb of god ... givin' birth to creation ... every moment ... this infinite potential ... Stop! ... don't chase her away by thinkin' or rememberin' or hopin' or fearin' ... live with her ... until the end of time ... you gonna anyway ... when yo self dies.
