Skywatch Friday- A Noiseless Patient Spider

A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark'd where, on a little promontory, it stood isolated;
Mark'd how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launched forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;
Ever unreeling them- ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you, O my Soul, where you stand,
Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, - seeking the spheres to connect them;
Till the bridge you will need , be formed- till the
ductile anchor
Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch
somewhere, O my Soul.
-Walt Whitman

My thanks to the team of Skywatch Friday


  1. Fantastic capture and the perfect words for the day and for the photo! I love it! Have a lovely evening! Happy Diwali!


  2. Lovely poem and skywatch photo. The spider is a cool capture.

  3. The spider looks like it is flying in mid-air. A tiny creature against the massive darkening sky. You have a lovely poem to match too.

  4. Walt Whitman had a wonderful way with words, and you are mighty good with your camera!

  5. Eileen, the spider has been there since a month. He is a natural pest- control of my garden.
    Autumn Belle, thank you.
    EG Wow: Wow! That's the nicest compliment I ever got!Thanks.

  6. Unique and lovely SWF. I covet my spiders in the garden, even when I sometimes retreat with a hairnet...gosh it can stick.

  7. Love the spider against the sky. Reminds me I don't think I've seen a Skywatch photo of this kind. And the poem complements the picture beautifully.

  8. I love this Whitman poem and your photo aptly illustrates it.
