Spider’s Web

A perfect creation
Knit between branch and oak leaf
Of glistening silken line

Catching light
Pure testimony, this ancient wisdom
Living locket

Dangled from a strand of pearl
The nape of the universe
Holds this precious life

Jewel
In wait for the unwary
Sweet kiss and beautiful death.
