Raindrops and a Spider's Web


jewels of rain
grace a gossamer net of silk
washing away dust
one drop at a time
cleansing can be this way

As for Spirit Lake from my previous post, I have learned it is
actually called Spotted Lake.
It is 9 km west of Osoyoos, BC. The lake contains one of the world’s highest concentrations of minerals. Here is one link: Spotted Lake, BC

  33. I used to gently unhook frozen spider's webs from the branches they were fixed to on my way to school and take them for show and tell. I was always captivated by the delicacy and intricacy of the designs, expecially with the frost or rain drops covering them.
    Thank you for taking me back down memory lane. I see they are still just as beautiful! And you have the gift of being able to capture them...

    ReplyDelete
