The Cage

From “The Lord of the Ring” Two Towers

What do you fear, my lady?”

A cage. To be  kept behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.”

While researching on slavery , I came across these photographs and that brought me tears. In the first photo boy was punished by his master for some small offense and second is a painting of a slave market. Yesterday I posted a flower- amaryllis, with two lines : “Birth of a  dream on the petals”.  This dream also had born years ago into one of the forest and where it ended!  That is the case still true with different faces.
