Week 43; A Poem a Day

10/20/16 – 10/23/16

And at this point
___________I feel
We’ve been laying
___________webs
And spinning lines
_______desperately
Trying to catch
Or wanting to wrap
________the Earth
Keep it for our own
________and suck
__________it dry
I have heard
_______the ringing
Of golden sun
_________glinting
Off powered threads
_________between
Barkless tree trunks
As I have felt
_________morning
On spider silk
______shimmering
Invisible traps
Brought to light
We’ve tried
_________so hard
To leave behind
______dark forests
With woven branch
__________roofs
We can’t
Though we cut them
__________down
They’ll once again
___________grow
Though we flee their
_____looming height
We find ourselves
________mimicking
Their biology
We find ourselves
__________caught
In the webs laid
___________for us
___________by us
We find ourselves
_______in shadows
Deeper than leaves
________could ever
___________throw
Where once we knew
________the timbre
_________of timber
_________by heart…
