light and threads

spiders have eight eyes
and i believe the reason they spin and have spun
webs and spirals and wondrous things is to
catch the sun, moon, and stars
within the dew, so they have enough light
for all of their eyes, to see far into the distance
a haunting foresight
what they will catch and trap in their threads
all is caught, even the words you have said,
stick to the strings as you walked by
they mix and shuffle in the breeze with
the remains of  fireflies and butterfly wings

Respond to light and threads
