2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 6

2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 6

For today’s prompt, write a hiding poem. You could be hiding. Someone else could be hiding. Something could be hidden. Or maybe there could even be a hidden meaning. I’m flexible with any interpretations poets want to put on the prompt. Have at it.

Standing right in front of you
the moment reaches out.
It's right there, 
the proverbial snake
taking the bate
of you.
Nudging, pushing,
shoving your hand
to reach for a land
known only in your dreams,
it seems.
Days passing by
the moment wondering why?
It hasn't been seized
ready to please
your every wish. 
Pulling you away 
from the day to day
suffocation, offering elation.
Frowning as you pass it
like two sailing ships
shrouded in the darkness
of the night.
