Haiku Horizons – Spider – February 26, 2016

Dew on a spider's web in the morning.  Luc Viatour

Dew on a spider’s web in the morning. Luc Viatour

morning walk
tattered old spider web
flaps in the wind

crystal drops
lacing a spider web
in the moonlight

gone
the old spider
an empty web

Morning Cobwebs – Tokubetsudesu – September 16, 2015

cobweb_small

shining on cobwebs
this early morning dew
crystallizes time

a crystal umbrella
made of spider silk
on the autumn path

imprisoned fly awaits death
caught in an old spider’s web
composing its fly jisei
it’s saved by the storm

even these morning cobwebs
are cleared away with breakfast
I’ll make some coffee and toast
thinking of autumn
