PEEK-A-BOO

 

PEEK-A-BOO

By CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM  1-30-2017 – 4:00 a.m.

 

A BLISTERINGLY,

 BLAZING YELLOW FIREBALL

LAUNCHES AN ATTACK

UPON THE NIGHT

PRECISELY WHEN THE COCK CROWS

AT DAWN

 

IT’S A SNEAK ATTACK

BUT NOT REALLY

WE SIT AND WATCH THE SHOW

MOTHER NATURE’S

GAME OF PEEK-A-BOO

WE’VE COME TO

LOVE AND KNOW

 

THE SUN JUMPS OUT

AND SCARES THE NIGHT

AND THE DARKNESS

RUNS AWAY

 

THE NIGHT

IT RUNS AROUND THE WORLD

AND CREEPS BACK IN THE SKY

AS DARKNESS HUMS A SUNSET SONG

A SLEEPY LULLABY

 

DAY IS DONE

AND GIVES A YAWN

AS THE SUN GOES OFF TO SLEEP

BUT ANOTHER GAME OF PEEK-A-BOO

WILL START ANEW AT DAWN

  1. An interesting poem describing sunset and sunrise Charles. I enjoy the way it has been written, it seems, through a child’s eyes. It give the poem innocence and taking you back to the basics of nature.

  2. Thanks so much!! I really value your reactions and impressions! Yes, it was written that way and I’m glad it came across. The recurring transitions just reminded me of the never ending joy that an infant gets out of the game of “Peek-A-Boo” status of now you see me, now you don’t.
