Ghosts

ghosts s

I thought
I sought demons,
discreetly hidden as
ghosts, pressed between remote pages.

instead

I found the cage of memory,
an enclosure beyond
caring, saving,
or time.

The word prompt “ghost” from The Daily Post yesterday, plus this week’s words from the Secret Keeper
THOUGHT | CARE | DISCREET | PRESS | SEEK

Caged hung figure #writephoto

and Sue Vincent’s photo prompt above  (I’m late again with this one; you can see all the responses here)

were my inspirations today.  The painting was actually done awhile ago, from a newspaper photo accompanying an article about refugees from one of the many troubled areas of the world.
