Dancing On A Spider's String

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” – Wayne Dyer
At first it was a blur ... the tiny leaf stuck to an invisible discarded spider's string.

It was haplessly tugged like a puppet forced to move at the whim of the wind.

It stayed glued to the thin thread on the roof no matter how buoyant the breeze.

Red as the maple leaf on Canada's flag, the Japanese maple leaf couldn’t detach or let go. It's fate out of it's control, I'd like to think it was enjoying the dance. Sometimes all we can do is to let go of what we can't control. 

The little leaf could twist loose or the string become torn. Perhaps then the string and leaf would fly off together, their spell unbroken. The bird in the holly tree (below) watched with me as the beat of the wind swayed the pair to their next performance.
