Black - The colour of death

Black speaks of death
and dereliction
Of abandonment
And betrayal
Black covered the earth
as Christ died
having endured
the agony of the cross
Yet black is every colour
the green and the red
the purple and the white
All mixed up
blended into black
So, in Jesus' death
is captured
all the colours of the Passion
The green of field and palms
The red of resilience and hope
The purple of priesthood
The white of table fellowship
all melding into
the black of death and dereliction.
With such a mix
perhaps it is inevitable
that some of the colours should leech
that some should seep through
But, for now,
Black is the colour of death.
