Doilies

06/23/2009

She must have spoken to them
to prepare for the coming life
adorning the house with doilies
just practice for her later state
each an intricate creation
catching bauble crystals
now, years later I find myself looking
at the arachnid stitching
catching blotted pearls of rain
and think granny’s now a spider
still adorning her old home
