a song (for the spider)

Spider Orchid, Beechworth Historical Park – 21/10/2021

and
who are you
to me

only
a spider flower

posturing
while I pass

I
can walk away

you
don’t frighten me

so settle down
just
calm yourself

no need to stand
high

no need
to threaten

I’ll leave you alone
but
I won’t
forget that you
stood up
when I went
walking past

brave
spider flower
I salute you
with a photograph

a line
of poem

and
a song

~

  1. That title is scary, the flower is beautiful, the words calming. I have killed three spiders in 24 hours so this was a strange sense of deja vu until I saw the picture-(perfect)
