"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Hiding Out

Caution and curiosity—
The need to hide, the need to see.
Gerbil instincts compromise—
Amid the shavings, lively eyes!

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a hide out poem. The prompt instantly brought to mind how our gerbils will hide in their nests of wood shavings, yet can't resist poking their heads out to see what's going on.)
