A Prayer for Spiders

God have mercy on spiders
hanging in their webs,
waiting for the moon

They seem condemned to loneliness 
to a long sleeping in between
How they sweeten our gardens
with their dew encrusted 
weavings, touching branches,
 framing spaces

And, when the orbed ones
have departed in the daylight
they are not dead, 
merely sleeping 
beneath the nearest leaf,
waiting for the moon

Suzanne Delaney

    I cannot believe how many you have written just recently Suz. I am gradually working my way through but had a little trouble trying to comment. Of course I love your poems about critters hence the comment here. Lovely prayer. Carolyn

    Enchanting write and alluring like one, under the moonlight, magnetic spell. I am intrigued from your writing style and now I'll read more poems of yours.
