dancing with a spider

spider-web-cora-marshall

each morning I arise
to find her hanging over me
pausing to be seen
before she disappears

tangled in the web
she's spinning all around me
sticking, clinging,
attaching me to her

a beauty by design 
a glance is mesmerizing
inviting you to linger
with her shape and curves

longing to have you nearer
for preservation, safekeeping
she'll cover you with love
life's worries drain away

for now i'll keep my distance
sidestepping the entanglements
skillfully gliding toward her
then pivot to evade

ensnared by the rhythm
swayed by her movements
caught up in the moment
closer, closer
