clay play

i have always been a seeker

what i didn’t know though

was that i’d been hiding too

who knew it was a game for one?


Day 16 of NaPoWriMo and all is tickety-boo in the garden, where i am hanging out all month. Rommy suggests that for today’s prompt, we should write a poem that incorporates the idea of a child’s game – board game or a physical game (tag, hide and seek, etc.).

    That’s a clever twist on the prompt. The brevity gives it a bit of playfulness, though there are some serious thoughts going on. Nicely done.

    Hide and Seek and hunting are kissing cousins, methinks. But, like your poem suggests, in the game of searching and finding, we can rarely quite tell which role we are playing (or how many players are involved).

    I really like this, Paul.
