Diligent Spider

Last five nights in a row, a spider spins his web outside the door of our side yard. We have spiders spinning webs everywhere. This particular spider anchors his web in a large area, then spins the biggest web I have yet to see. I tried my best to get the light from a good angle to capture the size of the web. I also include a poem written in October 2016.

A tiny spider

Labors every night

Spins his web, in

Perfect symmetry

Innate architect

He waits for his prey

A fly, a moth, a butterfly

Meal for the night

Reward for the labor

Before Dawn

Down his trap

Hides away

When night is nigh

He starts his day

Spins his web, again
