Both excellent but I really liked the first one.

Really great image, Sue and the verses are so succinct! Love it.

You know, I will always think of a catcher's mitt now, when I see a web, Sue.

A powerful thing, despite its delicate framework.

Selma said...

I adore your fractal. You have captured so well the combination of strength and fragility that makes a spiderweb. Your verses are wonderful!

Amias said...

These are jewels, but I love the "catcher's Mitt" as it is refreshingly unique when talking about a spider's web.

Jeeves said...

Food trap indeed! Makes me think, do we also fall into such traps!

Tammie Lee said...

I really enjoy your perceptions of webs.

Jim said...

The hammock is so enticing to a weary traveler. Zap, he's caught and dragged off.
Pretty much ditto for the second. I have come to realize that those spiders are bums, beggars, who work hard to get food without gainful effort. If they would get a job instead of building traps, ...
Only deceit. Their web might as well be a 'will work for food' sign.

Thought-provoking lines, slightly unusal and all the better for it.

I like the metaphors regarding food trap and catcher's mit. Both gainfully apply to the spider's web. I enjoyed your poetry along with the creative artwork.

Maggie said...

Indeed a web can be compared to a catcher`s mitt and I smiled at the thoughts of it being a hammock.

What a way to rest and wait for lunch to be served:)

loved this image! and your two pems are great--I'm with Anthony--like the first bestest!

Jukota said...

These are both very thought provoking, though right on the money. Love the fractal, too! Unusual angles on the prompt, I like that!

namingconstellations said...

It's a really random thing to pick out, but "web" works so well as a verb... I like! And yeah, the fractal is pretty rockin'.

Patti said...

Those are good- I can just picture the spider laying in it's hammock waiting for lunch.

Michelle Johnson said...

spiders definitely spin interesting food traps, don't they? your writing is strong and well written as usual.

Cassiopeia Rises said...

The poem is great but I don't think I like the image of a food trap. LOL
I like to think the webs spell out natures secrets. Well done. Your image almost looks like an abstract painting.


love, Melanie
