spider web (patterns in nature series)

The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider web."  ~Pablo Picasso

I'm thankful today that i could witness such a delicate yet strong work of art. Posting this image brought to mind a poem i wrote several years ago:


I saw the spider clinging to the tiny thread that morning
as the wind whipped and spun it

round and round

later in the day, he was still there

i could barely see the thread
it looked like he was floating

in mid-air
