its never so simple

black and white

right and wrong

this complex combination

that is us

the kindness and the cruelty

the hope and the despair

I see it in her painting

or his words spoken into air

comfort in the knowledge 

that the dark mountain

of the thunderheads

will give way eventually

to the ever present sun.
