spider in the garden

On a rainy sunday afternoon
drops are falling
thinly spread 
but constantly

and in the garden 
next to flowers
on top of herbs
in all shades of green
there wait 
two spiders

for easy prey
for changing times
and maybe just like me
they wait for yet
another warm and sunny
early autum's day

one sits 
on broken lines
of his net 
that once was fine
but now is gone
beyond repair
another hangs all quiet
in the center of his kingdom
of his formidable trap

and all I can do is stare 
let the camera snap
and wait and see how drops 
bring further beauty but no crops
to symmetries
pearls and steps 
to my sunday reveries
