small creatures (1)

I met a spider today.

she refused to tell me her name

– a name is most sacred to a spider –

but, scuttling across my desktop,

barely bigger than a freckle,

gazed at me with all eight eyes

and imparted a wisp of

something wise:

 

‘the universe can be huge,

(it is expanding after all)

but you and only you

can make you feel so

very

very

small.’
