Heaven Earth and another dead Wasp

This mud dauber wasp, Sceliphron caementarium, caught in a spider web becomes the focal point like a chitinous flower on the spare twigs of this spontaneously occurring ikebana arrangement I found in the yard, in which the pelargonium leaves are heaven, the fat succulent stems are earth and the wasp is the wasp. Silence was observed by nature as this composition was created, silence filled by the last buzzes of a wasp, and the stirring of a dessicated pelargonium leaf in the tiny breeze of the wasp's struggles.
