Black is the colour of the rain




Black is the colour
Of the rain that falls today
Black is the farm
And the crop that grows on it
Black is the sown
Black is thy plough
Oh bygone William, black is now your reaper
Black is the bone and black is the eye
So which is the daisy, which one the dew?

On that land of ice
White melts in fear
Sun burns away
Moon no more there

The whole world burns
Even the flame’s colour is black
So why play Holi
Coal will always smile

Yet there’s a heart
That smears a crumb of hope
The moon may be whitewashed
The rainbow painted anew

Sailing the sea




Poetry is the yacht on which I sail the sea
I fear the storm no more
I carry a storm within

Colour me not today



Colour me not today
I was black for a day
On the land
Where red and green bickered
Let the white now prevail

Pray wake me not, desire



Pray wake me not, desire

The lightning that knocks is asking for me
