In Haste

The poetry prompt for this week given by poetsonthepage is to write a poem from the perspective of the bunny or from the perspective of humans watching a bunny.



When I look at a bunny rushing, jumping, covering distances in haste this is what comes to my mind -





Swift 


The bunny hops

Light 


Footprints made on earth

Here


One minute

Gone

In t
he next few seconds 

Rushing 


From here to there

Then 


From there to here

Not knowing 


Where and why

Speed 


Seems to be the point

Resting


For a couple of minutes

Then 


Rushing

Off to another place

Not knowing where to go

Hopping

Sometimes high

Sometimes low

Always 

In a haste

Restless

Looking 

Here and there 

Wondering 


What is going to jump out

What is going to scare

Eyes peeled

Looking 


For opportunities that will fetch

A mouthful of grass

Replenished

To begin 


All over again

In haste 

We live life in a hurry, rushing past moments chasing after goals but in the rush we miss out on the precious moments, and later we wonder, was it all worth it.
