And Shadow Fell

And Light shone forth.
But Light was alone.
So Light radiated Blue, the light of air.
And Green, the light of nature.
And Red, the light of life.
And Black, the light of night.

But Black, being the dimmest, grew jealous and brought darkness to the lights.
And Light became wrathful.

“Begone! You are banished from my radiance.”

And forever more, whenever Light shines, behind the highest mountain and the tiniest mote, must hide Black.
