Caught In A Cobweb - Poem by Ankur Shrivastava
On a corner of my window,
I found entangled strands of silver
Beaded with pearls,
Shining in the thin sunshine,
Amused by its delicacy
I moved closer.
To my surprise,
It was a cobweb
Laden with dewdrops,
Arresting a tiny insect
Hanging in the air
Perhaps unaware of its fate,
A life slowly coming to an end.
Is that me?
Chained with shackles;
Seemingly delicate yet so strong,
However elegant and beautiful;
Suspended between heaven and hell
Unaware of the peril.
