The strand of web vibrates

and the spider darts out

to see what he has captured.

only a droplet?


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
