The Spider’s Web: Response to Nov. 17 Writing Prompt

Submitted by quiall in response to the November 17 CSB Writing Prompt.

***

THE SPIDER’S WEB

LOVING TENDRILS
BALANCED FOR SURVIVAL
ALWAYS ON THE PRECIPICE
GLIMMERING IN THE MOONLIGHT
SWAYING IN THE WIND
LIVING ON THE EDGE
OF FOREVER.

SILKEN STRANDS
FOUNDATIONS FOR A HOME
BARRIERS TO THE UNWARY
ENTICEMENTS TO THE UNFORTUNATE
FEARED AND REVERED
AVOIDED AND IMPRISONED
A LEGACY OF SURVIVAL.

EVER VIGILANT
EVER BUSY
ONE DAY, DEATH
AND AN EMPTY HOME
A BROKEN WEB
SPEAKS VOLUMES
DEWDROPS FORM
AND FALL UNNOTICED
TEARS UNBIDDEN.

  1. Paints a beautiful, serene, and slightly dangerous picture. Now, I’m going to go back to pretending spiders don’t exist.

  2. hahaha good plan, I’ll do that too! and thanks.

  3. I’ll never look at spider webs the same again! Lovely poem, really 🙂 I have a spider phobia but was forced to overcome (some of) it when I moved to the southeastern US. Now I have a good appreciation of the beauty of spider webs … as long as I don’t walk into one 🙂

  4. I have always thought the spider’s web was a beautiful and profound thing to regard. Your poem confirms it is so.
