Hide And Seek - Poem by lesley herrera
Darkness falls. Streetlights burn bright.
The neighborhood awakens
And the coyote’s howl at the moon
One chosen to chase down the pack.
Shadows lurk in the corners.
Lightening bugs guide the path
Plotting the maze
That sets you free
Hiding in a bush
Listening to the crickets chirp
Wondering what else lies beside you.
Mind playing tricks
Hair prickles from your neck
Like a porcupine
As you run through the forest to safety
Five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five
Here I come!
One foot in front of the other
Eyes playing tricks
Searching for your prey
Pounding of feet
Running passed like wild elephants
Reaching out to tag one
To release you from hunt
Falling on dewy grass
Missing your chance to be released
Your IT again!
