Reflections on Art and Life

Spider Webs

Spider webs are woven
From fragile egos
Damaged and discarded
When no one is looking

The hypersensitive yarn
Magnifies every twinge
And transmits it
Through the delicate veins
Of self-absorption

Crisp carcasses of moths
A collection of grudges
And unreturned favors
Bounce in the wind

Too frail to endure the storm
The cobweb collapses
Only to be swept away
With yesterday’s cigarette butts

    This poem revealed the stroke of genius in you, by far the best I have read from your works. It would be great if you can render music to these words, my ears are dying for that.

    The cobwebs of reality intertwined with the processes of life and death of a spider web… surreal yet real.

    I don’t know if it is apt to do this, but i would like to have your views on my writings posted at
