A Spider’s Gift

Web of reflections. If you look carefully you will see how each dewdrop reflects the sunset.

Web on a fence
Blowing in the wind
Silk stronger than steel
But lightest of gossamer

A gift freely given
Labour of love and necessity
Patience exemplified
Pattern repeated again and again


Trap for the unwary
Dinner-plate of necessity
Yet no utilitarian structure
Instead beauty epitomised

An arachnid wheel
Softly gathering dew drops
And glistening in the sunlight
Sparkling diamonds; what a sight!

Only you

P1440043

Only you can bring that sparkle to my life

That wholeness and completeness

That is a rainbow feeling

Tingling from my nose to my toes.

Only you shed light upon the dark corners

Which no one but you understands

Only you give me warmth and serenity

And confidence to face the world with calm.

Only you – yes only you.
