1 Poem by Cherise Wyneken

Night Blindness

Yellow leaves
chase yellow leaves
in somersaulting tumble
down the street.
Are they someone’s dreams
loosed and laughing,
free from frozen stalemate
of a trapped and game-ruled mind?
Their playful patter
calls me out to listen.
Run!
Don’t let your dreams escape.
