Camouflage

I blend into my environment.
I become one with it.
Leaves become a part of me.
I stay still as silence fills
the air that I breathe.
I can’t be seen. I know
when and where to show.
It’s by choice I hide –
concealing what’s inside.
In life, I leave the sight
of those who lack light.
I stay away during the day;
I become a star seen at night.
