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

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

Written for the following prompts:
– A quadrille (44 words) for dVerse

– Putting My Feet in the Dirt : “finders keepers
– Ragtag Daily Prompt : “web

That’s a lot to squeeze into 44 words.

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
