Stone 14, twenty-third day

Why I Can’t Get Rid of Those Cobwebs

To be a spider, you must not give up.
You spend the night, unsleeping, drawing out
your finest patterns, stretched so taut, upheld
by threads attached securely here and here.
A lovely sight. Your best work yet. And then
A giant with no love of art, no heart,
sweeps it away. Torn threads. A jumble where
there was design and beauty. So, you start again.

  1. I love this, you’re so right – but I can only cope with spiders outside!

  2. Unique works of art, if only for one day.
