A Spider's Web Poem by Jonathan Platt

A Spider's Web

Rating: 5.0


Silk-thin silver strings woven cleverly into a lair,
An intricate entwining of divinest thread...
Like strands of magic worked upon the air,
The spider spins his enchanted web -
His home so eerily, spiraling spreads.

His gossamer so rigid, yet lighter than mist,
And like an eight-legged sorcerer - a wizard blest,
His lace, like a spell, he conjures and knits;
I witnessed such wild ingenuity wrought and finessed,
Watching the spider weave a dream from his web.

I love this one Jonathan, A spider can spin a web ever so intricately. Beautiful yet dangerous to the unawares. Well penned.
