PEEK-A-BOO

by thereluctantpoet

By CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM  

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
