Back to Poetry (#5 - UP Diliman Series)

(Poem for Arne's birthday)

With light, the darkest blue
not of sea or sky, but of earth
viewed from space, conscious
of its life.

In darkness, the deepest green
not of leaves or moss, but of jade
bought from trade, precious
on the palm.

Light or dark, the pale world
of your face is hued for life:

of earth and jade, they say
light plays with color, but only I
of course, can speak of hues
altering brightness; of colors
changing nights to life 

for life, all
for life.

til Arne 07/08/13
