Tiny Orb Weaver Poem by Juan Olivarez


Tiny orb weaver,
Weaver of dreams.
Stronger than steel,
Are your invisible beams.

Golden and black,
Cringing from my touch.
Though endowed with venom,
It's really not much.

Crawling up my arm,
And refusing to bite.
Just you're mere presense,
Causes others great fright.

But you and I spider,
Know each other well.
Oh if you could talk,
The stories you'd tell.

So sit in your creation,
Of silk strong and fine,
Golden Orb Weaver Spider,
You're one of a kind.

9/30/13 Alton Texas the Golden Orb Weaver us a relative of the Black Widow. Though it does have venom it is not dangerous to humans. These beautiful spiders abound in my cactus garden stringing their strands between the arms of my cereus.

    Well, not on my arm he cannot be! I gravitate more towards an oriole's nest, but your poem educational, to say the least, and so well presented! (Report) Reply
