Writing 201: Poetry– The Spider’s Lair

My

world is

woven from a

desire to create

a special reality.

                                             Silken threads intertwine

        and twist in the            moisture laden air,        all the while I wait

                                            and ponder the divinity 

                                             I seek.  The darkness     

of the swamp engulfs          and challenges this       veracity.  Bottle green

                                                        leaves and

                                                      vines encircle

                                                 my retreat,  drawing

                                           wisdom from the primordial

ooze beneath my feet.          Patiently I crouch  and               wait, silent in  my

                                                spider’s lair, as  gossamer

strands of silken lace              play upon her hair.      The dankness of the mire,

                                             the stillness of the day,  

                                                      This I know is my 

                                                          actuality, my

                                                             dominion

                                                                I shall

keep.

Whew, this was a tough one today.  We were to use an animal, make it a concrete poem (shape poem) and to use enjambment. Thanks for checking in on me.

  1. Fabulous! I love spiders, and therefore was happy to see you chose the spider for your animal. This is a tough challenge, but you amaze me with your talent and ability to step up each time and produce beautiful poetry in line with the theme. Hugs.
