Photo prompt round-up – Caged #writephoto


The photograph for this week’s prompt was taken outside a Sheffield pub, the Noose and Gibbet, where the notorious highwayman, Spence Broughton, was gibbeted after his hanging at York in 1792. As pub signs go, this macabre example is in a league of its own…. but it ceratinly attracts the attention of the casual passer-by, though I imagine it might spook a few unsuspecting visitors when darkness falls and the wind blows the cage…


With bars of illusion


The cage of perception

Pushed and pulled

By expectation,

The hanged man sees only bars

Not the space between.

    Pushed and pulled by expectations, seeing nothing but the bars and not the spaces… WOW, this is some powerful imagery that puts anyone reading those lines of yours into the scene.
