Ensnared

(Another childhood poem.)



Filaments tightly woven,

a chrysalis cradles me,

deflects the dangers;

it is an armored womb,

bright and hard.

Loosely woven,

a web imprisons me;

struggles snare me firmly

in these threads.

What weaves this armor

and this trap?

It is I --

I am the spider,

and the potential

butterfly.

    Just a wonderful piece of writing. I really like the imagery and parallels drawn in your writing. Stephen.

Great to meet you..unfortunately I don't have much spare time early in week--still work 3 days so look forward to seeing more later---the best, Craig---BTW, this poem has too much to comment on in a minute.
