Eye of the cobweb
In my self-imposed room
I’m thinking
Thinking there is a world out there –
      To the perimeters and
      All between –
A world of living creatures
Creatures whose complete concern is

In my comfy room
Eye of the cobweb
I fancy them
Or beautiful
Or ugly
They are alive!
All, essentially, the same
Whose complete concern is
All competitors
All predators

Eye of the cobweb
In my room revisited
I’m thinking
In reality
There is no “thing” about them
Or slimy
They are alive!
All brothers
Caught up in this spinning, cruel world together

Eye of the cobweb
In my room revisited
I’m shedding tears

    Daver, glad you enjoyed my seasons dance. Soup is SO slow this morning. Is it that way sometimes with you?? I sure hope this is a temporary thing because I need to leave the house and cannot get to my comments quickly enough today. Have a great day, my friend. Luv, Andrea
