Life in Black and White

written by: Nara Hodge

@Nara_Hodge

 

Life purely in black and white
With contrast lines boldly drawn;
The absence of bright colours stark
Against the backdrop of a rainbow dawn.

The morning taken over by flourishing hope,
The night consumed by sheer despair -
Contrasting emotions seen through the periscope
Of a black and white life laid open and bare

Add some colour to your existence,
Turn monochrome into bright sepia,
Break the pattern of the previous consistence,
By cutting ties with all that is familiar.

The segregated, partitioned pieces
Of an existence made with straight lines,
Of a black and white life that slowly blossoms
Into a vivid image of happier times

Mother, lover, dreamer, poet, politics addict: Nara Hodge describes herself as a lover of words forever in awe of written word and the formidable beauty of poetry. She believes in therapeutic writing and often uses her poetry to express her pent-up emotions and untangle the chaotic thoughts of her restless mind. Nara refers to her writing as Restless Reflections, which is also the title of her first poetry collection in English that is currently in progress.

Nara writes poetry in English and Russian.
She lives with her family in beautiful Oxfordshire, England.
