Captive - Poem by Deepak Manchanda of Delhi

Wisps of floating white cloud
In the stark blue sky

Green sprouting seedling
On the stony grey wall

Angelic sparkling beauty
Amidst the crowds of lifeless forms

The bright yellow cottage with red flowers
On the naked brown hill

A warm red glow of love
In the tangled blackness of the undergrowth

Pearly white feathers that flutter and fall
Against the shining steel of the cage

You are my poem
All mine to hold
Captive and tight

All mine
To hold
