Captivation

I'd never paid much mind before; but then one day, she caught my eye. With captivation, I stood still- her clever skill did mystify. The weaver, with her silky thread, skilled in creating such designs- without a pattern to go by- wove out her art with perfect lines. This inborn talent blew my mind- an image, seen as perfect art! How does she know to weave that way- with no instructions from the start? Then, all at once, a moth flew down- held fast- as if caught in a trap. The weaver quickly moved right in; her day's fine lunch- in silk did wrap. October 9, 2022 Contest: Captivation Sponsor: Julia Ward

Oh gosh, Sandra... you're quite a clever weaver yourself. I had no clue that you were watching the weaving talent of a spider. What a wonderful entry... good luck.
