Night Colors

4 Mar

by Valerie Moreno

My night colors shine in dazzling array,  

gleaming sun in a brilliant sky  

clouds rich and white as vanilla frosting  

thick green my feet sink in  

water bubbling like chrystal ice

 

Yes, I see these colors  

vivid with unbridled clarity  

when sleep turns my brain-camera  

to high definition.

 

I see your face

close up, your eyes  

meeting mine in sweet truth.

 

I feel your hug,  

your love around me,  

fighting the alarm  

pulling me in to wakefulness.

 

Now, it’s all a memory-  

and an anxious wait for night  

when blindness goes away  

and I will see again
