FOWC with Fandango # 28 : Captured

The challenge:
Today’s word is “captured.” Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

“You captured my heart,
Like a bird in a gilded cage”

When we are loved, our partners want to take care of us and keep us safe.
What better comparison than being a bird in a cage, where we are fed, watered, cleaned, admired and kept safe from predators.
It’s all very poetic, but when you think about the restricted space, is it no wonder we then get another line saying the heart must be free. No wonder poetry can be confusing and contradictory.

We also capture images in our minds don’t we. Some are lucky to be able to put them on canvas or take stunning photographs. Precious moments captured in our memories.
Some we share, some we keep close to our hearts.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
