Almost gotcha!  (Giggle, peek)
I always lose at hide & seek.

Behind the bushes!  (rustle, run)
I almost caught my foxy son.

Between the shadows!  (crouch ‘n stare)
I thought I saw his rumpled hair.

I’m the pirate!  (hold your breath)
Who brings you fifteen-second death.

Or I’m the soldier! (Stand real still)
With knives, and guns and things that kill.

Or savage injun! (Crawl ‘n creep)
Who seeks to scalp you in your sleep.

But somehow every time we play,
You always seem to get away.

But you enjoy it.  (Kiss my cheek)
You always win at hide & seek

My name is Von Smith, I have written nearly 4,000 haiku this year.  My website is:  https://2thinkis2be.wordpress.com/   Above the Noise.  I also write other forms of poetry, short stories, and have two work-in-progress novels.  My love is  my wife; my view is prosaic; I like to read and to binge (the gerund of binge could be binging, but that is too close to Bing ing quality series, and watching engaging movies.
