Gray Matter

Nuance is the difference
between sage and schmuck,
between friend and foe,
between dusk and dawn,
between lust and love,
between wine and whine,
between fortune and folly,
between poetry and prose.
What is between
black and white?

Look both ways for discernment and wisdom.
Mind the gaps, lest life be a fool’s journey.

    1. Thank you, Rochelle.

      I kind of stole a bit-line from “Dream On” (Aerosmith) but changed fools to schmucks, and I love words rooted in Yiddish.
