Hidden {Friday Fictioneers/Haiku Friday}

Haiku Friday


Within the tall grass

we scamper. A ruse of sorts.

We long to be found.


Every Friday I join with my friend Lou of LouCeel for Haiku Friday.

17 syllables of fun.

“8, 9, 10…ready or not here I come!”

Milo’s legs pumped and his chest heaved as he ran through the field, his eyes locked on the old smoke stacks. Skidding to a stop he plopped down into what he knew was the perfect hiding spot for a five year old even as the tall grass scratched his already bruised legs and tickled his nose.

From a distance he heard the squeals and high pitched giggles as one by one, his friends were revealed. His tummy clenched as the voices calling his name got farther and farther away.

“I’m right here…” he whispered to himself.

I try to have my Haiku compliment the story.

Thanks Rochelle, for letting me WRITE ON with all of  you.

Happy Weekend, Happy Writing.

  1. Lovely haiku and how true for adults ~ reminds me too of ‘hide and seek’ played as a child ~ Enjoy ^_^

  2. Oh dear. My heart was in my throat for those last three sentences. What an interesting observation/twist on the purpose of hide and seek. We all want to be found.
    Just lovely, darling.

  3. Good job. It could also have a scarier twist at the end if the voices are getting farther away for some other reason. :-) Heeeeelp!! Too much FF!!!
