pure stillness

rain filled day, drop by
drop covers a 
web sewn between
twig branches,
the spider drinks
of moisture, 
becomes drunk
on the mindfulness
of its work.

drop by drop covers
lifeless twig 
branches,
slowly turning bonewhite,
sips of 
moisture as if 
to lick off 
with dry fingers.

once lived with oak bark,
now a memory 
in a moonless night,
snapped off
by an unforgiving wind,
now lies in silent
moss, no longer
holding
autumn leaves.
