Three’s company

A spider
weaves its
safety net
to capture
unsuspecting
insects,
but now
a fallen leaf
has stuck,
taking all
eight legs
to kick it off.

A black
beetle
out for
a morning
stroll on
my window sill —
I wonder what
part of my
house it
calls home.

A fruit fly
keeps
landing
on my
keypad —
how fearless
it is in the
shadow
of my
falling
fingers.

    Delightful! The third stanza is my favorite

    • Thank you, my friend! So much exists beyond our eye level. Sometimes, I just have to pause and acknowledge my non-human roommates and neighbors. Their lives are no more or less important than mine – we are all meant to co-exist and respect our otherness. I hope you have a wonderful week ๐Ÿ™‚
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    Awesome capturing of life around us right now.

    • Thank you, Susan! With Spring comes the awakening of life, as seasonal change heightens our sense of place, small wonders all around if we stop to notice them. I hope you’re having a great week, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚
