Repost: By a Thread

Hope those that have, don’t mind seeing this one again. Still on hiatus from posting anything brand new due to writing projects and, unexpectedly, a nasty flu bug, and what this poem expresses, I think.  My apologies for being absent from so many of the blogs I love to follow. Blessings to all.


So small

hanging on a thread

of its own making,

Copyright 2012 by DM Denton

hesitant

to go up or down,

caught in a

movement larger than

its life,

taken for a ride,

let down so gently

after all.

Flattens out then gets

up again,

delicate and brave

as it

decides its next move.

Tiniest spider

I’ve ever

seen, slowly sliding

through the cracks

where it’s safe.



I have created a new page on Facebook specific to my novel, A House Near Luccoli. If you are on Facebook, I invite you to visit and, if you haven’t already, become a fan by LIKING it. Just click on the badge at the top of the right sidebar. My author page badge is just below. Thank you!
