(Or…the Colorful Spider Web)


Spider webs over camera lens,

In sunlight toward rainbows bend…

Mini prisms’


Natural light into rainbows rend.

Camera lens with diamond glow.

Double imaged layers show…

Sunlight bends

On the lens,

As a ray is caught and slows.

As the sun sinks slowly down,

Spiders lose their multicolored gown…

Unlit webs disappear

As they are much of the year,

Waiting for prey found.


–Jonathan Caswell

    I have a spider that disappears during the day and returns every dusk like clockwork. On my balcony sliding frame. I have named Charlotte. Yes, not original but I like it.
