My writing group has been sharing writing prompts in this time of isolation.

The most recent prompt was ‘spider web.’

Took me an hour to find a spider photo since I am spider-averse.

spider web

~

web enlarges spider

her domain, her coefficient of creep

extends her occupation of space

~

trap for unwary

blue-bottle flies

beetles on the wing

and gnats, nattering

~

all of the cobwebs

I have brushed from my face

would not weigh a gram

but they take up

a fair chunk

of brainscape

~

just as the spider

is sensitive to vibration

my skin notices

the sub-threshold of touch

the tiniest occupant

of my domain

~

All my best,

Jane
