Tendril of web

We weave our lives like spiders
knit one pearl one, knit one pearl one
our mothers our fathers
our sisters our brothers
comfortable blankets of foundational love

We spin our webs like spiders
twist one strain one, draft one draw one
our grandmothers and fathers
aunties, uncles, cousins
our first nuance of worldly love

We seduce our mates like spiders
entrance one snare one, betwixt one court one
our partners our friends, our heart chosen ones
shaking gossamer trinkets of capture and enrapture
dancing patterns of karma and sacrificial love

We birth our babies like spiders
dream one birth one, manifest one create one
our girls our boys, our dreams our familiars
loving unashamedly
courting unconditional faith and divine love

We sculpt our lives like spiders
knead one form one, shape one adorn one
our journeying our service, our learning our wisdoms
working tirelessly under the sun and moon
weaving intricate laceworks of love and support systems
love in action

We wither and die like spiders
shed one lose one, dry one die one
hollowed empty shells on a midsummer breeze
letting go the heartbeat of love web living
leaving glistening jewelled lacework of intricate weaving

to tendril cheeks
catching dew drops that glisten
under moonlight and bird song
We weave our webs…
