One day's lesson

Starts from scratch
Goes round and round
Building ribs to strengthen
Wires smooth as silk
As strong as steel.

Watching the work
Tear it down, I did
In gay abandon
Unsuitability of the craft
In a place as this.

He starts again
With all enthusiasm
Working away nonstop
His home so big
So slender so tender.

No hunger no pain
Tiredness he speaks of not
No complaints of rework
Better than before
Works untired works unbent.

Amazement is the emotion
Wondering how it is possible
Little brains they say
For one so small
So tender so fragile.

Wonder at the perseverance
Being so insignificant
Builds homes amazing
Stronger and bigger
Time and again.

Madam, there is a question from my side.

Which part of or particle's life is taken to your imagination?

I loved the lines and felt the strength. I thought of a bird which built it's nest.

I see a lot of motivation from the deepest and hope on the face. This is something more. Which I'm looking for!
