Spider Dreams


I loved this spider
when I first saw her spinning
her delicate web.

She rode her trapeze
back and forth with the breezes
across vast spaces

between shrub and branch…
an expert tight-rope walker,
attractive stalker.

No bugs could resist
seductive Ariadne
in her sticky web.

Now as cold winds blow
she rests in her shrubbery
as she plans for Spring.
