Three Strings Of A Web

The big brown spider has three strings of his web strung. He rest 'pon the eve
waiting in the cold crisp autumn air.  He is draw up in a tight ball anticipating the sun 
to rise above the horizon.  A gentle airy breeze zips by cooling the spider to the core
as acorns bounce from tree to roof to ground. Trapped by circumstances of nature
he can not rebuild his web today.  Will he go without food with no trap to
catch insects?Web completely gone after heavy wind of the night and early morn.
The wind comesfrom the east with a chill like artic's breath. The brown spider is
drawn up in a ball attached to the ceiling beam of the porch. Will he be able to rebuild?..That will be a story for another day..

    I can tell that you care about spiders. So do I. Have rescued a few from the shower just before turning on the water. I always hate to destroy the webs. Love, daver

    I really like the way you paint these pictures of nature. You even talk about the much maligned spider with compassion. Your sense of observation is remarkable. I love this poem...peter

    - I am very fascinated with spiders - I do not like to have the inside of my house. - We have no poisonous spiders in Norway, nothing to fear. - A very nice poem Sara! - Have a pleasant day. - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

    I wouldn't be hurt if the spider starves to death. I know I shouldn't say things like that, but I just hate spiders...if they have to be around let them feed and live out in the yard or something, just not near the house! I still want them to catch insects so I can't get rid of them altogether, too bad too! Your write explains the tender life of a spider, what he must go through just to make it through his life! Though I hate spiders you made me feel for this one! What a great poem, Grand Work!!
