Wonder Webs

Beauty speaks to us in so many ways
sometimes we see, but don’t realise
we really should be in awe.

She offers us deep reflection to
calm that inner chaos
and is found in complex
or, such simple things.

Even ugly is its own beauty
if we close our eyes but
open our minds to see beyond
to the true.

The gifts we are given abound
all around us, everywhere.

I do not like spiders
but they create such a deadly beauty
in the living of their lives

the webs they weave
so intricate and bound to fascinate
a wandering mind
when, they appear like magic
in the morning dew.

there’s beauty everywhere
and we see it as such
when we choose.

  1. yes…we see it as such when we choose…sometimes we have to train our eyes a bit to see the beauty around us…

  2. I agree with you on every word, my fave is about the spiders web. 🙂

  3. Indeed, though the spider’s web is deadly, it is beautiful indeed! I think there are a lot of things like this in nature. Even the most venomous snake has lovely patterns.

  4. I love your view and that is how I feel-you summed it up so magically!
    I try to see the beauty, where others do not go….
    I love your poem! 😀
    Yes, like you said, “when we choose”.

  5. Daydreamertoo,

    There is such beauty under our noses at times, but we fail to see it….I have taken photos in recent years of webs, when coated in a fine frost. So beautiful and the work required by the very clever spider!!!


  6. Yes, there is beauty to be found everywhere…even in unlikely places. And things which may not seem beautiful have a beauty all their own. Great reminder.

  7. In some American Indian mythology/spirituality, spider is the totem of creativity. The October Clan Mother is “Weaving the Web.” You might enjoy reading Jamie Sams…beautiful symbolism here.

  8. even ugly has beauty…i love that truth…it is all in how we look at it you know….we choose to see it or find it…in a web its pretty easy…so delicate and shimmery…

  9. Very true, it all depends on our perspective. Even the scary can be but the cat still will watch from high up in a tree.
