|Photo provided as prompt|
Succinctly Yours consists of the photo plus a separately-chosen, unconnected word of the week. Unconnected, that is, unless some writers can use the word with the photo.
This week's word is "woven" and SY entrants can use it in a short story of 140 words or a short-short story of 140 characters.

Here are my contributions for Week 123 of Succinctly Yours:

(140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.)

(139 characters, including spaces and punctuation.)
