Courage comes in small packages.


A spider on a silken line
latches onto the wind.
Trusting to the safety
of smallness, she braves
the vast unknown.
Her mind whirls
with geometry,
as the world slides past.
She seeks a place
where spiral cords
may gather prey.
Prismic threads,
fused with sunlight,
will weave a universe
within a universe as 
hunger creates beauty
and beauty creates death
and death creates life
for a spider on a silken line...

Truly the circle of life. I'll try not to cringe and run away screaming so much the next time I spot one.

Excellent. A parable of life, craftful indeed, meditative.

*cringe* spiders creep me out...especially if they are on me (or i walk into one of their webs aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh LOL), but they are enthralling to watch. there is one spider i will hold--a daddy long legs (did you know, they are technically the most venomous spiders? their mouths are too small *thank God* to bite humans).

an excellent write--well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :)

i like spiders as well as long as they are in a glass or jar I freak out when i see the unsheltered in that way.....I read a book toni morrison i think it was "Sula" where she incorporated a spider as one of the characters it was really good....anyway enjoyed your poem

I love spiders. You ever watch a garden spider weave its web? One of my favorite things to do as a kid.
