Strangely Beautiful Spiders

Every morning, one or two—
true, how what distantly frightens
rightens on closer view

in morning dew-light glowing
growing in grace as you
do your own talent-work
I stole the title from Jane Dougherty’s blog post, and though we have had numbers of spiders coming inside lately, this is probably not really about spiders.

    1. Thank you. I wanted to do something elegant and “serious” to do justice to the title, but this came out instead. 🙂


  1. Having finally had a chance to catch up with your blog for the first time in a while, it occurs to me (probably reoccurs) how pleasingly precisely you place your words – it simply gives the reader enjoyment (this reader, at least) to find the words arranged with such seemingly exact inevitability.

    For some reason, I get the feeling that your words are somehow painted into position… though even I’m not sure what I mean by that 🙂

    1. Thanks for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment. Just the kind of thing that keeps me going. 🙂 And I love the idea of painting words into place.


I'd be so happy to hear from you.
