spiderwebs

Ideas spinning
silvery white
entraptions, and illusions
no prey tonight
I'll stay hiding
in moonlight
waiting till the time is right
I'm looking for the perfect place
to spin a Web
of sticky silvery thread
Where a connection is made
and if your not
looking out
you might not escape

I like that. Is it about a spider or about yourself? :evilfun:

Nice imagery. I could see him.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”
― William Blake

I'm working on my poetry ;)

Thank you, Arcturus :) I don't consider myself a poet. I usually keep my writings raw, and somewhat defined, and to myself. This one is attached to my memories, the theme light and darkness. I once had a spider in my backyard too, that I would visit.

Also about healing.

I have enjoyed many of your poems, the one about the Arcturus brings back fun imagery :)

After posting this last year, it was odd that I had noticed alot of spiders for a couple of months.
