I’m Hiding

Day 6 of PAD 2012 (April 6, 2012) was a hiding poem. This started out as a children’s poem, and then I wanted to show how adults sometimes hide from each other.

I’m Hiding

Peek-a-boo,
Peek-a-boo.
I know how to
hide from you.

I simply stand
right in this place,
and then I cover
up my face.

Peek-a-boo,
Peek-a-boo,
I know how to
hide from you.

My sweet words
obscure my frown;
You’ll have my meaning
Up-side down.
