Weave in Peace

author's note:

And now for something a bit shorter...


Moonlight whitens a spider dangling
down on an unseen string--
down from a limb of shadow leaves.

This suspension holds me in suspense

yet the spider seems quite at ease:

the spider knows its strength

thus, it weaves in peace...

on the other hand, humans
are still learning

so we doubt as we dangle...

maybe someday
we'll realize the truth
of our strength

and thereafter
weave in peace.
