Caught In A Cobweb

Poem By Ankur Shrivastava

On a corner of my window,
I found entangled strands of silver
Beaded with pearls,
Shining in the thin sunshine,
Amused by its delicacy
I moved closer.

To my surprise,
It was a cobweb
Laden with dewdrops,
Arresting a tiny insect
Hanging in the air
Perhaps unaware of its fate,
A life slowly coming to an end.

I wonder,
Is that me?
Chained with shackles;
Seemingly delicate yet so strong,
However elegant and beautiful;
Suspended between heaven and hell
Unaware of the peril.

Love this poem, the though process behind it is pretty obvious but the way in which you describe the event is lovely. HG: -) xx
