Drops of mist


On silken strands jewels of water suspended

Images captured, in time suspended

Silent mists remind me of days now ended

Not sure if this is even a real poem per se, but just something that came to mind when I was posting this photograph. The air was heavy with mist and as I was walking by the tennis courts in the part the spider webs in the spaces of the fence were covered in dew drops. They were like jeweled lace. I loved how the drops of water were suspended like jewels on a silken string.

    1. If you take a picture with your digital camera/phone, just enlarge the area with the web and the dewdrops and crop it. I was so glad I was able to get a clear picture of what I wanted that way.

  1. I agree with the others who commented. Your poem is beautiful! And I love the jewelled lace, too! I have a patch of lilies at my front door and I often look in there for interesting spider designs.
