silent beauty

still morning
mist hanging low
over trees
on higher ground
I slowly progress

delicate lace
suspended
between immature
branches
on young bushes

spiders dangling
beautiful
pendants
thin silken threads
imperceptable

dew drops
of silver
rest on leaves
light up bushes
decorate green

still misty world
adorned, embellished
silvery beauty
observed by those
who slowly pass by

You have a wonderful way of producing a picture in one's mind with your poetry Claire. Thanks.

May we all learn to slowly pass by so we can truly glimpse those "dangling beautiful pendants" and perhaps write poems like yours singing their praise. Very wonderful, Claire.
