All is deathly quiet in the winter of 2021.
| Final Thoughts of Human Discontent
What is the absence of colors?
Black or white? I used to know.
Prize photos can be black and white.
I don’t remember why right now.
I only know there is no blue sky.
The yellow sun crashed to earth.
Green grass is gone to stay.
I sit in a freezing dark house.
Alone now, afraid to move.
Deathly quiet surrounds me.
I gave my best for all.
Lost beloved one by one.
Memories hang in icy air.
One last cold breath.
White now black.
My peace comes.
