Sticky Wings


Drops of dew glisten

The dazzle of the sun catching them
Like diamonds threaded into the silk web
Carefully crafted by the nearby arachnid

An odd time to notice the obvious yet peripheral details

And in that moment I surrender
To the ebb and flow of dawn
Ceasing to struggle in this aesthetic mess

While accepting that I'm trapped

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
