I Want to Write in Spider Ink/ poetry by Eileen Howard

I want to write
In spider ink.
Weave silken webs
into sylvan fantasy.
All will unfurl
as the web catches 
one idea, then
adheres to the next.
A glistening web 
that weaves beauty
into wisdom.

I want to post 
sticky webs to stars,
dark hidden worlds,
mysterious spheres.
As I briefly adhere:
Absorb. Absorb.
Turn, turn again
from orb to orb.

I want to write
in black spider ink.
From my bright colored gut
weave deep truths.
Link universes.
Grapple with galaxies,
to guide me back home
