Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: Autumn Sunlight

Dog runs in late sun
Grass carpet of dewy webs
Spiders may forgive

Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: "Autumn Sunlight"
This is a new meme group for me. I was drawn to this prompt, as it reminded me of a scene this autumn when I was walking my dog. We were alone in the vast soccer fields of a nearby school on a weekend and the late slanting sun showed that the grasses were totally carpeted with spider webs. It was truly awesome, and I pondered how fleeting the beauty of the spiders' handiwork would be.

And if the spiders do not forgive, then what? Hmm...

Really nice to see you here Lydia.. another place to have fun... Love how much of a story you manage to package into it.

Lovely pictures all - the photograph, your haiku, and the image of you and bonbon discovering such magic.

Do you suppose poetical spiders would write Octaves?

This is all excellent. But one problem; where's the picture of Bonbon running through all of that?

Blessings and Bear hugs!
