Tiny Orb Weaver


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.

    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

    You have glimpsed into the tiny depths of the universe, life small and large abounds... shall we see it? You have. - Bravo gran poeta! (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
