Hide and Seek. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

Hide and Seek. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

This week’s prompt is hide and seek. It was a tricky one for me on both counts.

The image I have chosen is one I took last weekend. It is one of natures hide and seeks – a spider and it’s web. The spider hides out of sight and then seeks its prey once it gets caught.

In respect of the poem, I believe that many people in life – myself included – want something that other people have, whether it be money, fame, a job, a baby, a bigger house. But, what I do know, is that you should not waste your time and energy on worrying about what other people are doing. Focus your energies on yourself and seek out what it is you want. If it is really for you, it won’t pass you by.

Hide and Seek

Seek and thou shalt find they say
But what if it’s not there?
Looking, searching, come what may,
Sometimes life’s not fair
Wishing, praying every day,
Wanting what someone else has
Be careful what you wish for they say,
But that just makes me mad

I know that my dream is out there,
I just have to believe
At the moment though, its hard to bear
So hard to try and perceive
I will keep going come what may
Until one day we meet
If you want something you’ll find a way
In this game of hide and seek

    Such encouraging and beautiful words, Victoria! I love the whole attitude that one must seek to find a way, even if it seems like there is none, to get what you truly desire. A great reminder to keep going even in the face of adversity! Thanks so much for hosting us on #Prose4T! Lovely to read through your words and admire your photos!

    This is a great poem. Beautifully written, with a great message and an interesting twist on hide and seek. I particularly like the last two lines. I shall be keeping an eye out for more of your poetry.
