this morning
i stood outside
in the sunny daytime
watching as a small, brown, perfect leaf
spun and spun
dizzyingly spun
attatched to the end of a spider's silky thread
one side shiny
one side dull
i was certainly trapped in a super-natural moment
watching, eyes unblinking
until my kitty, Azriel, interupted
with her purring presence
wanting the attention to turn
so i stroked her neck
and she closed her eyes
but still the leaf was spinning
while kitty was purring
