Well, actually
they just swooped in
and hung out
for awhile.
Looking quite sociable,
and communicative.
Rather well-behaved.
Perhaps just there
to inspire a poem
in me.
I felt so honored.
It was quite a sight.

Not all that many;
just intense.
A real rapport.
Spiritual.
My heart swooned when I saw the first one winging in.

“Silly girl! We don’t eat spiders!”
“Not the ones on houses, anyway.
Maybe the ones in trees. We cool!”
They winked and flew away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Part One

The crows swept in,
cawing their disapproval
of my
killing of the spiders.

Those tasty morsels!!

Part Two

My heart swooned when they swooped in.
“Silly girl! We don’t eat spiders!
“Not the ones on houses, anyway.
Maybe the ones in trees.”
They winked and flew away.
