in the mist
concealed from view
the spider waits
her web
a miracle of
single-minded exactitude
and steadfast determination
invisible but for diminutive beads of vapour
forming tiny teardrops in the mist
giving the illusion
of a crystal chandelier
turned on its side

The last four lines of your poem are amazing. I love the images, the way it sounds and comparing it to a chandelier is a very unique image to me. The rest of the poem is really good as well but I particularly liked the last four lines. Thanks.
