krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

(1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)

The patient spider


I wonder what he does
Between catches and kills
Waiting, patiently waiting
On that ornate web- his design
And what does he think
With his pint sized brain(if any)
Standing on eight distorted legs
Above a ceiling upside down
(or is it right side up for him?)
Leading a proper spiders life
Lonely, and whose only music is
The buzz of a fly caught on his strings..?

I have always wondered what these spiders do meditating endlessly in a very still world only broken by winged meals.
