Here's the Creative Writing class's amazing group Renga poem:

I am a lost leaf
don't know where I will end up
probably right next to you

I can't know what you're thinking
but I hope you feel the same

Leaves fall from my arms,
leave behind dark rents in air:
I hope you miss me

Perhaps I will not be missed.
Shadows are cast behind me.

The night creeps up on 
my scared yet soulless figure
searching for meaning

Meaning that I find in your eyes
every day and night in your eyes.
