Cycle

The cell is undergoing mitosis. Spindle fibers pull the chromosomes away toward the poles of two daughter cells. A black widow spider with an hourglass on its back doesn’t seem to scare the porcelain doll at the spinning wheel. The stationary figure shows no emotion as the sands of time accumulate at the bottom. The process will soon start all over again.

    Great objectivity diplayed here. Congratulations on the win. I particularly like what you did with spindle. We all appreciate the fact that most bodily functions are done without intervention on our part.
