Did Wordsworth capture daffodils the way bees in my garden capture nectar?
Did DaVinci capture Mona Lisa’s smile the way black birds capture earthworms?
Did Rodin capture the Gates of Hell like Elton John captured Candles in the Wind?
Was Abelard accurate when he said Heloise captured his heart?
And what about Dante’s Beatrice – was anyone captured?
Did my lover capture me?
Have I captured my love?
The way my earthworms capture …
The way Ansel Adams captured Yesemone
And Walt Whitman captured America.
Have you captured anything recently?
