Web of Desire

Mysterious world
in moonlit darkness glitters.
Magical entrance
luring those with weary wings
into tunnels deep.
Travelers beware!
One brown leg propped up…
in anticipation waits
the hungry spider
with dissolving bites of fire
dripping in the dark.
Don’t stop! Fly away
from glittering illusions
woven with desire.         ~ms

About Mary Strong-Spaid

You can find me any time wandering around in my own mind gathering thoughts.

    Excellent poem… the last stanza seems to be related to the vedic idea which states that the universe, our world and all tangible things have been woven by a Spider Mother-Goddess (which is somehow related to the idea that everything is pretty much an illusion!). I truly liked your verses here, dear Mary… Thanks for sharing… Happy Holidays! …🙄🤗
