some limitation collapsing in on itself,
   (supernova alone; sudden expansion and falling into density)
some fruit hanging and growing sweet,
and sweeter,
lost in spiral tendrils of remembrance and telling,
a small fist gripping something smaller
a photo, laced over with the webs of imagination,
growing out into the space allowed and overflowing
  taut skin, stretched and bared in denial of these secrets,
as if there was nothing we could not know.
how silent will the realization be, after all these shouts?
how dizzying the solitude -- hanging fertile
on the vine
in the empty green umbra of leathery leaves?

Hid"den (?), p. p. & a.

from Hide. Concealed; put out of view; secret; not known; mysterious.

Hidden fifthsoctaves Mus., consecutive fifths or octaves, not sounded, but suggested or implied in the parallel motion of two parts towards a fifth or an octave.

Syn. -- Hidden, Secret, Covert. Hidden may denote either known to on one; as, a hidden disease; or intentionally concealed; as, a hidden purpose of revenge. Secret denotes that the thing is known only to the party or parties concerned; as, a secret conspiracy. Covert literally denotes what is not open or avowed; as, a covert plan; but is often applied to what we mean shall be understood, without openly expressing it; as, a covert allusion. Secret is opposed to known, and hidden to revealed.

Bring to light the hidden things of darkness. 1 Cor. iv. 5.

My heart, which by a secret harmony Still moves with thine, joined in connection sweet. Milton.

By what best way, Whether of open war, or covert guile, We now debate. Milton.
