StormyDay

The Spider's Web


Shining in sunlight
silver strands of silken string
such a simple piece


So enchanting too
That keeps me here in wonder
Trapped just like a fly


Dewdrops upon it
reflect morning's revere
silent and joyous


In the crisp clear air
Of a new day with new hope
Spun within this web


Ominous beauty
Enticing delicacy
Danger unseen lurks


Unsespecting fly
passerby, to be caught in
gossamer white strands


Linger not nor gaze
Avert....for sticky beauty
Claspt, ne'er releases


But ever holds you
A web of your own weaving
Spin you this yourself?


Gossamer deceits
Unwittingly thus weaving
Our own destruction......


Yet for all reason
one can't bear look away from
terrible beauty


Morning displayed
In awesome delicacy
Breathless, yet fearsome


And as day begins
the light of the sun reveals
nature in her bloom


Dew-spangled wonder's
Intricate simplicity,
Enchanted ponder.
