Tranquility

The spider’s web hosts
today’s seclusion,
hidden from the finders, keeper
of tranquility’s repose.

Silky isolation wraps the introvert
in a sticky embrace –
mistaken for warmth –
providing solitude to dream or just
sleep.

His thoughts fade,
calm and still,
and the spider goes
unnoticed.
