A Spider's Web

I have developed an interest and a passion for photography, as you can see, but I am, at best, an amateur aspiring for improvement. It is my delight to share some of Nature's wonders as I attempt to develop skill with my camera.

The Web

In the woods
she weaves her silk
to lure and snare
some tasty ilk
on which to dine
and feed her young,
with the skill and grace
of her spider's tongue.

A crafty web
is what she weaves
and once complete,
she slyly leaves
to wait with patience
for her food,
a banquet for
her little brood.
