Technical Definition - (given by dictionary.com)
simple past tense and past participle of find
something that is provided or furnished without charge, especially meals given a domestic:
The thing you'd rather be than lost. When you are found, you are okay. You feel safe and secure. At least compared to being lost. Where the world feels like it is falling apart, and you will never be saved. But without being lost, do you want to be found? Maybe you don't want to be lost or found. What is that? Who cares? The prompt is about found anyway.

Did you find a lost item from years ago? Are you selling it on eBay? (I may want to have a look-see)
What does it mean to be found? Are we speaking literally or metaphorically? With all the power of GPS today, it is easy to be found literally.
Did you ever find that thing you were looking for the other day?
What I would write with this prompt - (that would probably be wrong)
I could have a story featuring a lost and found. Or I can go on a diatribe about the meaning of foudness and how technology has ruined the search. So I am definitely going with lost and found, is what I am saying.

Get literal. Get metaphorical. Get searching. Whatever you do, have fun with this prompt.
