|A nearly heart-shaped gold leaf|
suspended on an almost invisible
spider web against a backdrop of
a brick wall
She had hung on for all she was worth, but when the harsh winds came she could cling no longer.
With a swoosh she broke free, but the winds took her both up and down and all around in some kind of a crazy spiraling design.
At times it was almost peaceful, but about the time she was totally relaxed, she was rudely snapped back to the reality that she was earthward bound and it was terrifyingly close.
Although many had prepared her for what to expect, the ones who had made the journey were not around to confirm it.
So until an unsuspecting breeze rips apart the web she is in, she will hang precariously mid earth and sky.
In the meantime, all that others see and remember is her heart of gold.
