A poem For My Grandson PoPo

24 Jul

Small Spider in my car catches me unaware,

tickling on my chin.

How did he get in?

So sweet, so cute, what should I do with him?

I’ll stick my head out the car window— at 50 miles per hour

That should be the last of him.

Shoot! There goes my hat.

But not, apparently, still hanging on,

Is my new best friend.

    Spiders are great totems for writers. I have an agreement with the ones who enter my space. Don’t touch me and I’ll leave you alone. For the most part, it works. Thanks for the smile today,

    So cute. 🙂

    This is the best way to show him that poetry writing/reading/hearing can be fun. It doesn’t have to be so serious all the time!

    What is intended may not happen. That makes it more interesting!

    Hats are easy to lose, but not spiders!
