Having Friends Over for Dinner

I very nearly missed out on her graceful zigzag gig
beneath my bougainvillea, suspended from a twig.

Behold the nimble spider, spinning out her floss
determined that no insect will turn out to be her loss.

See her web’s tenacity, holding fast her prey—

those delicious visitors who rarely get away.

She sucks out their elixirs with minimal delay,

having guests for dinner every single day.

 

Prompt words today are web, tenacity, nearly, nimble and delicious.
