Aracknid Atrist

Silken strands strung stunningly,
a woven web of artistry.
Secretions from innovations soul,
yet born to place each strand,
just so.
Elegant economic pattern,
drops of diamond dew bespattered.
Stops one dead in tracks this morn.
Now to face arachnid
To such a masterpiece destroy…
A humbled apology employ.
Hours spent on spinning threads,
a masterpiece of newness

  1. God’s ways are higher than ours. I wonder if in some way spiders make their webs in ways that have mathematical dimensions and shapes that praise Him and we are absolutely clueless.

    • I have no doubt that is true. I believe all of creation dose. Even the human body. “In him I live and move and have my being.” Existence itself is a testament to his glory. The study of science reveals just how deep his masterpiece.
