spider egg hatchlings
first moments into life
below my front porch
instantly singing
the songs of earth bound love
craving release from gravity
to flow freely
through the universe
no one listening but me and time
to this chorus of spiders
hatching into the world
bound by strands of their own making
singing the same song
of longing i sing myself
dear little duet friends
so many will not survive the day
yet some of you will feast on delicacies
as rare as can be found
in this sun blazing universe
which will siren a song so splendid
that great-spider-spirit

and its holy creator

will be mightily pleased
