By a Thread

Watch the spider hang
Precariously alone
Far from home, its web
On a single thread
No control of wind and rain

Blown by a dark storm
Raindrops creating black holes
Tears the fragile web
Which keeps secure the spider
The place she calls home

While hung by a thread
Tossed by nature’s mad fury
Tightly grips the string
Holding onto precious life
Riding out the storm

Unknowing how to endure
Raging storms that blow
