In the Eye of the Beholder

October 3rd, 2010

Spider WebEveryday
a resident spider
weaves a veil
over my
driver’s side
rear view mirror.

Every day
I admire the work
and then
whisk it away.

This morning
the web stuck
to my fingers.
I stopped to wonder
about this neighbor.

I thought
about
tenacity
and about
my disregard
of what is truly
a work of art.
