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.
