There was nowhere to hide
there was nowhere to run
so they escaped upwards
of whatever’s hunting them down
there was fear
there was hope
there was anticipation of what they’d see
they climbed higher and higher
until they reached heaven
they were free.


I wrote the above piece as a response to the November Chapbook Challenge to write a poem inspired by Mikola Gnisyuk’s People in Trees

From the website New First Unexpected by Kevin Kinsella

I am linking up with that lovely place called DVERSE POETS PUB for its first Open Link Night for 2014.  Do come by and check it out. 🙂
