black and white, written by Toni L.A. Cross 12/18/09

black and white
squiggles on paper
lines and curves
a little boy looks on
and that’s all he sees
 
a man with wild hair
pours over the page
hearing a symphony
singing forth
 
black and white
squiggles on paper
lines and curves
a tow-headed girl in rags
puzzles at the mystery
 
a teacher with tired smile
pours over the page
hearing romantic verse
caressing her heart
 
black and white
squiggles on paper
lines and curves
a man looks on
trying to make sense of it
 
a boy in pajamas
pours over the page
and becomes a pirate
seeking hidden gold
 
black and white
squiggles on paper
lines and curves
a wonderful world
a hidden place of knowledge

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
