14 LINES OF JOY AT FLUTTERING!
WDC Writers Cramp 10.17.10 for 10.18.10

New Prompt!

Roland S. Barth said, “Little will really change unless we change ourselves. Think otherwise. Fly the cage. Make your presence felt . . . “

For today’s prompt you must title your story or poem, “Fly the Cage.”

14 lines of fluttering joy

FLY THE CAGE!

In a hyperactive leap across the counterpane of my bed,
my somewhat-less-than-tame-or-sane
housecats flew at the closed window, spurred
by an innocent, unsuspecting butterfly zooming
past the glass.
A clueless observer would have been astonished
by the activity; the cats acted
like they were going to see
a live mouse act, or something better!
But it was just a pretty, flapping butterfly
soaring past their view, that made them
want to fly the cage
of their normal world, to seek
the fluttering unknown!
