THRICE CAPTURED

photo by RMD

Thrice Captured

Serendipitous, this
timely, divine
Summer escapee, slipped free
anticipating autumn
Freefall flight suspended,
caught, confined, quiescent
 arrested by arachnid’s craft (nature’s design)
then plucked, preserved in picture (yours)
and captured in words
(mine)

  1. Another ekphrastic poem -- inspired by the photo here taken by a good friend of mine who threw up the challenge: "Write a poem for this!"
    Hope you enjoy! :-)

  5. I remember this one vividly. I wonder why I didn't comment...hmmmm.
    I'm about to be a "summer escapee" myself, so I double love it this time around. ;)

    1. LOL Glad it was memorable. No need to apologize for not commenting. There's no keeping up with all the reading & commenting, and if you're writing -- that's more important. Thanks for the kind words this time around. :-)
