Spun (Fibonacci)

when
a
spider
spins it threads
a spoked wheel that traps
even the dew (though not its point)

while
the
wheel I
spin traps me
only, as I speak
rather than do, then lose my thread

I
doubt
if six
more legs would
add it up–some are
just born with a centered center

and
some
are not–
still, when eyes
are caught in those dew-
spokes, oh spider, how we spin–

This is a draft “Fib” or Fibonacci poem posted for a prompt on With Real Toads by the ever-magic-weaving Hedgewitch, Joy Anne Jones, who blogs at Verse Escape. She explains the form better than me–it follows the numerical Fibonacci sequence. The photos above were taken a few days ago by me, on a morning in which all the spiders in the nearby area seemed to have convened. Photos just do not do the webs justice. (Nonetheless, all rights are reserved. Also note that the pics were uploaded from an iPhone on the WordPress App and may not show up in toto. If the web is missing and you want to see it, just click on the pic.)
