DROPLET

 

By Charles Robert Lindholm  1-27-2017  –  8:30 p.m.

 

The strand of web vibrates

and the spider darts out

to see what he has captured.

only a droplet?

disappointed

he returns to hiding

 

he won’t be fooled again

as more droplets

fall from the skies

and onto his web.

raindrops on a spider’s web?

 

No, teardrops from my eyes

as my broken heart tries

to forget

you
