Brown Spider

The very large spider sits silent patient in the center of its web not knowing
that solid gray clouds slowly float from the south.  Moisture laden clouds ready
to drop much needed water upon this dry section of earth.  The brown spider's web
is strung between the Holly Tree and the corner eight by eight post and brace.  It is placed where a blowing rain will saturate it.  The spider is unaware of the
eerie stillness in the air.  A quietness even respected by all nature's creatures. 
There are no birds chirping, no roosters crow, no buzzards soar, even the
noisy crows hush their cawing, and the coyotes' pups are silent.  Then the sound of large waterdroplets just a few which bring down some oak leaves and 
acorns with a banging upon the roof.  A strange feeling of solitude that rarely
happens.  The quiet equals the quiet before a snowstorm appears.
Will the spider have a protected place during the flooding rain blown by the wind?
Only time will tell if he is prepared to weather the storm and only time 
will tell the intensity of the impending rain after a long drought.. 
Only time will tell, only time will tell...  

Oh!! The spider and web disappeared..I will keep watch.

    This is a great write/poem which is a very delightful one for me to read this morning my dear friend Sara. When i was a little girl I was fun of playing spider (spider's fight) with my younger brother so, I may also say I'd got the same observation with yours which you expressed it excellently into a very lovely prose my dear friend. So love it & enjoyed. Thank you so much for sharing! love lots and big hugs, Leonora

    Webs have a way of reappearing. You captured the poetry of nature.

    If I watched a spider, especially a big scary brown spider, I would find it running after me and chasing me around in fear...I hate spiders and I'm deathly afraid of them (have you noticed how few times I wrote of spiders within my spooky Halloween poetry?) I really enjoyed reading this poem though even if was about spiders. What a fantastic piece, Great work!!

    Very descriptive! I felt like I was sitting beside you, and watching this along with you! I love to quietly sit and observe nature, every now and then. And, sometimes it provides an inspiration for a new poem! Wonderful writing, Sara! I really enjoyed reading it!

    so you sat and watched this spider, Sara? I should try to sit still and do something like that sometime. Good one!
