What Divides

when there is only black and white
justice must search out the shadows
for dead reason, peril to the unwary

the lines of separation define
nothing but the adjudicator of polarities

look closer and see the colours
that run like blood between us all,
tones and shades and prisms
reflecting one whole world,
infinite and varied and splendid

we are a tapestry, a unified spectrum
of uncountable truths where justice
serves the tenets of compassion, the one
indivisible presence
