Poem of the Day


Winter Ablutions


Spider walks with shivery legs

to the edge of his dew-laden home, then waits –

perched on the bottom thread.

His white web of winter droplets

absorbs the morning sun.


spring up

balance back on thread

hold tight.

Dew drops fall and spider

enjoys his morning shower.
