Treasure Island

Sticky Wings


Drops of dew glisten

The dazzle of the sun catching them
Like diamonds threaded into the silk web
Carefully crafted by the nearby arachnid

An odd time to notice the obvious yet peripheral details

And in that moment I surrender
To the ebb and flow of dawn
Ceasing to struggle in this aesthetic mess

While accepting that I'm trapped
