from Heart Strong, Selected Poems of Nina Serrano 2000-2012

You are learning to see in darkness
Moving by feel
Your skin an antenna
Goose bumps signal when you find a live wire
Words electrify the spirit with a flash of light
illuminating the pathway
as it fills the night
Close your eyes in the dark
You picture the sun
You are learning to see in darkness
Squinting fear into courage
