Run and hide

We fled
you were pregnant
holding your belly as
we ran
through bushy growth
verging on the shore as
we tired
with no rest allowed
gasping for caught breath as
we dove
beneath the waves
breaking thick and fast as
we swam
round crags, hiding
first frantic then awed as
we stood
on a sandbank
panic receding as
we watched
the pursuers
from safe ground for
the moment.
