Diamonds on Glass

Thought I’d reblog a poem from June 2016. I’m not a fan of spiders, but the intricacies and beauty of their webs, especially when they’ve caught the morning dew, has always fascinated me.


How they cluster,
This dazzling array
Of simplicity and transparency:
Tiny rainbows trapped by the sun,
Slipping southward
Joining forces with those similar
Yet unique in their oneness.
Droplets on silken thread,
Poised forever
As they glimmer and shine,
Magnifying Nature’s beauty
On webs and glass alike.
Such are rain drops,
Fallen from the Heavens
Beading on windows,
Dainty chains of irregularity
A gift of life to those parched.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
