oh web!

oh web!
of water orbs
rolled
and dangled
picking out silken lines
walls for a woven home
oh web!
cast out in ghostly seas
drawn in
at first light
netted liquid
from crackled brown corners
of earth turned once
on a hot day
oh web!
that my tentative finger
touched
leaving
one more orb
of air
oh web!
spun to take and giving instead
i close my eyes and breath you in
