Oh, what webs we weave.
This amazing spider’s web which I caught with my camera,
inspired a variety of thoughts and conclusions.
and if I try hard enough, I can find
some light and color in my circumstances.
Even though the threads look delicate,
the web is much stronger than it appears.
And even though it feels like
my body is much stronger than it feels.
Even though we may think
we are all intricately connected
I used to think I was a single thread,
I have been able to build a web of my own.
Even though the web appears
much like my life,
I just have to accept all the fragments of nature
that also get caught in the web.
The uneven design of the web
much like the videos I’ve watched of the
neurological networks of our brain synapses
and the energetic pulses between our cells.
The web is not solid, and neither are we.
One negative thought can
and like a spider’s web,
why I can feel so overwhelmed,
feeling like I have been
about to be eaten alive by life.
Then again, the web can be
And maybe the purpose of a web
Maybe the spider wanted
And built a web that would also catch
fragments of nature
Maybe spiders have personalities, too.

Note: a fellow Reiki practitioner I knew from the past read this and responded: Webs are also used for PROTECTION. Visualize it around you. In Huna, we symbolically use a web for same.
