purple flowers provide
a spiders’ loom.

Sleep’s refuge

Like a clutter of spiders,
the cold crept over him,
probing old wounds,
prodding old pains.

He stirred; but half-awake
he searched the bed.
Touching nothing,
finding no one,
he remembered, shivered,
pulled the cover tighter,
and sought again
sleep’s refuge.

Purple flowers, Denver Zoo

Denver Zoo
Denver, Colorado
1 September 2010

The Denver Zoo marked the beginning of
the 2010 trek Tricia and I made to
the Great Plains.

We enjoyed viewing the flowers:
the spiders enjoyed living in them.

See you along the Trail.
