A Dream I Had

I dreamed that there was a ladybug sleeping in the corner of a dusty windowsill. Upon waking up, she began to scurry to the other side of it. But draped down from the frame of the window were spiderwebs. So she got tangled in one, and I had to brush it away from her. And so it happened again, and at this point the tiny spider in his web was looking quite content. But, as the ladybug made progress past him, he became frustrated when he realised she was bound to get away. And eventually she did, crossing to the other side of the webbing. But just then, a much bigger spider--the size of my outspread hand--caught the poor ladybug in his thick ropey net and devoured her in a moment.
