Mysteries


On spider’s web a dewdrop’s glimmer
Grabs a moment of my sight
My eye then scrolls the web’s dimension
Fills my pupils with delight

A maze of wonder, gift of beauty
A sunlit canopy of lace
The silky web spun to perfection
Of spider’s own inherent grace

Who has taught her how to weave
A veil to catch the morning dew?
I would write poetic verses
Of this mystery, if I knew

Sounds of warbling still enchant me
Mornings when the locust sings
He gloriously comes out of hiding
Scales the bark to spread his wings

He knows the cycles of his time
He knows the hour of his rebirth
Buried years below the soil
Appears on time upon the earth

How does locust know the seasons
Creeping out through morning dew?
I would write poetic verses
Of this mystery, if I knew

You and I in love’s dimension
Wonder at the joy we’ve won
There is an exquisite moment
When two souls become as one

How do lovers know when love
Has reaped the scent of morning mist?
If I knew that splendid moment
I would write a poem like this

You and I in love’s dimension
Wonder at the joy we’ve won
There is an exquisite moment
When two souls become as one

How do lovers know when love
Has reaped the scent of morning mist?
If I knew that splendid moment
I would write a poem like this

------------
another lesson in perfection of poetry...taught by one who makes it look so easy...this was so enticing to read...the web images were so lovely and the emotions at the end of the poem were indeed, splendid.
as always Liz, you show us how its done.
take care, jm

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...
