a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Web of Love

Today I’m pleased to feature my image with words
by fellow blogger and close friend, Robyn Lee of Through The Healing Lens.
When I read her post Mandala of Her Mind last week, I was not only moved but
tickled by the fact that I had just taken a photograph that I felt reflected
the web of love that she describes so succinctly. It never ceases
to amaze me how true connections between loved ones
appear and reappear time after time.
Thank you, Robyn!

Like a spider,
setting forth
to make her way;

Strand by strand,
she weaves together
antique threads of
hope truth wisdom.

Carefully connecting
delicate fibers
of promises

She watches as
mosaic patterns
revealing small
segments of self

she knits complex

Intricate mazes
designed to capture
dreams unrealized;
tying meticulous
knots tightly,
at each cross-section.

With tenuous
twists and turns,
she spins through
tangled tales
of love;
wildly from
silken strings of

in the heart
of her mandala
she rests

Knowing that
her work
for today
is done.

    • My pleasure Robyn! I’m not quite sure if it’s a flower or a plant…I took it at the Longhouse Reserve in East Hampton…16 acres of wandering gardens…quite special…:-)

  2. That is indeed a lovely “web”-picture. It’s great how you put the centre off to the right. Beautiful close-up picture.
