Fallen from a branch, fluttering down on the warm autumnal breeze - ready for destiny to take its turn, returning to the earth.
But on the way fate played a hand that lead to helplessly landing and being caught in the tangle of a spiders web, left hanging in beautiful suspension to be appreciated and admired...for just a little bit longer.
The earth can wait another day.
Have a gorgeous weekend - I'm hoping for a woodland walk...if the weather will allow us and lots of foraging for autumnal things - or failing that it's a game of Monopoly (they tend to last a whole weekend around here...competitive - oh yes!) with apple pie and popcorn.
