To Hide or Seek

The cautious, ever wary of any hint
of danger, avoid ledges, looking behind
hedges and undo exhilaration.

The curious seek the thrill of adventure
and exploration, search for the taking
of breath and racing of pulse.

The same end is inevitable for both.

    You wrapped this piece up with a tight little conclusion, although I’m not sure that I agree with you! 😉

  4. Very true..perhaps the inevitable should be approached with a sense of curiosity..when the time is right..

  5. Eventually the choices tend to be narrowed down to just that. They may have to be a little more adventurous obviously. Nicely Mark!


Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
