A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Webs

Night takes off her jewels
Bequeaths her bright pearls to dawn
Strung on spider silk.

For Haiku Heights #17: Silk

Thank you so much! I wasn’t quite sure where I’d go with the “silk” prompt, but when I thought about pearls strung on silk thread the image just inhabited me.
