October's Moon Totem in Full Splendor


A glance through my picture window,
With a sudden catch-breath,
Only inches away, I spy
Industrious creatrix.
Her abdomen, a gold and black mandala,
Wavers in wind gusts.
Legs extending equidistant,
Effect a delicate balancing act
On her woven work.
Braided zigzag anchors
Webbed hemispheric artifice.
Moment to moment, this:
A mindful solitary sentry

October Totem by Karen Newmand

Self Reflection:  Little spider is a powerful totem. Am I noticing more spiders in my life?  Am I living spider's gifts?
