Deep valley

The steep sided slopes

that surround their home

keep them hemmed in

never permit them to roam.


Hands placed over ears

eyes shielded from the world

mouths clamped tight shut

bodies protected, tightly curled.


sunshine shortly brightens

darkness hides them safely away

hide and no seek with reality

for them ignorance, a place to stay.
