White on White

Inspired by Mary Oliver's "Poem of the One World"

On White
- K A Mackey

White, a mound of tiny desert asters.
White, a snowflake drifting in the frozen air.
White, a single noontime cloud floating in blue sky.
White, a heron skimming and dipping above sapphire waters.
White, a piece of paper, crisp, bound and unbound by words and lines.
White, a wedding dress embellished with pearls and translucent crystals.
White, a space within a silent meditation filled with the softness of breath.
