Kaleidoscope


With innocence and child-like eyes,

she peers into the murky

tube.

A twist;

a gasp of joy, her mouth now oohs!

An aha moment of splendor

as shadow turns to light

as she, alone, creates amazing colored webs

expressing mad excitement with each spin.spider web poem

Now she feels what the spider feels

as he builds his new nest of circles, angles, trapezoids

while on his homeward quest.
