Prayer at Seventy

Prayer at Seventy
God of thresholds, guide
of souls between worlds,
have mercy on me

who when I asked you
if I could pass my last years
with less anxiety

changed me into a tiny spider
launching into the unknown
on a thread of gossamer

and when I begged you
to let me be a bigger
fiercer creature

into a polar bear
leaping between
melting ice flows.

and what big claws you have
whiskers and jaws you have

hehehe, male or female, not having bones but effective poisons, they are done in their threads of gossamer, Bev :)

I'm not sure what to say to this image ... very strange--yet fascinating. Part of one and part of another ... a cross creature with a serene-looking face ... actually, quite loveable, Armando.

well, I chose this strange-fascinating spider as you defined about to illustrate this ironic text, Erika
