I observe a spider as she spins silken threads. Early morning dew makes them sparkle like diamonds in the bright sunshine.

Smashing write, Jan, in a format that struck me as too much like hard work. [you're not cracking up, I deleted my previous comment about syllable counters because I’d missed the fact that ‘Like’ was included in the count. What can I say, it was late and past my bedtime ;-)]

Good Morning Jan - I am one who does not like spiders or flies so good for the spider who took care of the fly but now who will take care of the spider (smile). Nice work with fun imagery for the reader. Have a great day. Thank you for sharing.
