Baby spider, no bigger

than a pinhead

snuggles next to the sink

for three days,

sustained by dust motes

and a sip of water

from a speck of mist

.

until this morning

when she fluffs him

into a tissue

and he rides willingly

through the house

and out the back door

to the garden, and then

.

as if knowing,

he drops down

into the leaves

of the orange Calendulas

which have just begun

to bloom.

(a children’s poem)

Daddy long-legs

on the ceiling,

can you know

how I’ve been feeling

as you lurk

above my head

while I lie

tucked in my bed?

Just keep in mind

my policy:

don’t spin

in my proximity!

Stay overhead

and you can be

guardian watching

over me.

This little guy has been above the bed for a month now. Might have to name him.

Spider, spin your web

threads of raindrops in the sun

you have captured me.

After wind and rain

Spider eats his wet, torn web

then just spins anew.
