Spiderweb

  • For months a little spider lived on my kitchen windowsill
  • She wove  a cobwebby silk tunnel in the corner of the window frame
  • carefully wrapping it around the bumpers of the old toy cars that sit there…
  • I tried not to disturb her.
  • She trapped the little moths that crept into the boxes of breakfast cereal in the pantry.
  • The ones my mother called “millers”.
  • So I fed the moths that fed her.
  • And although I never saw her, we had an understanding, she and I.
  • There was this web that connected us beyond the ones she wove.
  • This web of words I weave each week to trap ideas,
  • the one that has captured her so I may share her with you,
  • is not so different from the web she wove.
  • As hers fed her and connected her to the world
  • So my web of words feeds me    
  • And connects me to my community
  • And to you.
  • When the summer rains came
  • my spider neighbor moved
  • to the other side of the window screen.
  • She has gone now – leaving only a tangle of silk
  • and her egg sacks behind.

Live a Different Story ~ Rev. Gail Marriner  

Sometimes we need to change our underlying narratives to change the ways we live in the world. Shakespeare, Taoism, permaculture and the Ware Lecture delivered at the General Assembly inform this service.
