Wonder Wednesday #6 Web

Salutations! What do you think of when you hear the word, web?  Do you think of a spider weaving n' casting silvery threads.   Maybe you think of being online and how far our thoughts and words travel?  Or maybe you think of reading a grand novel, which has a web of deceit exposed.   Web can mean so many things...


[web] Show IPA noun, verb, webbed, web·bing.
something formed by or as if by weaving or interweaving.
a thin, silken material spun by spiders and the larvae of some insects, as the webworms and tent caterpillars; cobweb.
Textiles .
a woven fabric, especially a whole piece of cloth in the course of being woven or after it comes from the loom.
the flat woven strip, without pile, often found at one or both ends of an Oriental rug.
something resembling woven material, especially something having an interlaced or latticelike appearance: He looked up at the web of branches of the old tree.
an intricate set or pattern of circumstances, facts, etc.: The thief was convicted by a web of evidence. Who can understand the web of life?

Poets, look around and cast your eye in any direction and see what tangled thoughts you can gather.
Please share a web that attracts your attention in any form!   I look forward to your intricate poems~

  1. Thank you Ella:
    yet another treat of a prompt.
    Spending a life time of weaving and knotting and knitting and lacemaking threads in reality, I made this one virtual for a change. Hope that is acceptable to you.

  2. I love webs and have written about them a few times. Human webs and nature's webs...they all catch us!

  3. Thanks for the heads up on this Ella:-)

  4. Laura-I just couldn't believe it... ;D
    So glad to see you here!

    Karen-I love that, yes they do~ So wonderful the way you put it :D

    Aprille-All is good! I love that you have dabbled in so many lovely
    art forms! :D

  5. Good one, kiddo. My brain is beginning to weave some words.

  6. I took an old web of words of mine. It's about the world wide web!

  7. Hi Ella, I LOVE this prompt, being a spinster and all. I nearly went back to Whitman for this, but refrained and instead re-posted "Web Design 1 & 2," with a revised ending for "Web Design 2." Sorry not to write a new bit. I am very tired today but will be back to read the rest.

  8. Ella,

    I immediately went down a technical path of web and deceit:)
    A great prompt...
