Good Morning Sunshine! Enter, The Spider!

The Spider by Robert PT Coffin

With six small diamonds for his eyes

He walks upon the summer skies,

Drawing from his silken blouse

The lacework o his dwelling house.

He lays his staircase as he goes

Under his eight thoughtful toes

And grows with the concentric flower

Of his shadowless, thing bower.

His back legs are a pair of hands,

They can spindle out the strands

Of a thread that is so small

It stops the sunlight not at all.

He spins himself to threads of dew

Which will harden soon into

lines that cut like slender knives

Across the insects’ airy lives.

He makes no motion but is right,

He spreads out his appetite

Into a network, twist on twist.

The little ancient scientist.

He does not know he is unkind,

He has a jewel for a mind

And logic deadly as dry bone,

This small son of Euclid’s own.

Robert PT Coffin, (Page 6.) Book title: “Strange Holiness” written published in 1936, and won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
