Artemisia – Absinthium poetry by pd lyons


ARTEMISIA – ABSINTHIUM

The red spiders with long legs

Do not fear her

As they make their way around the worm wood

Knowing this is home.

From foraging into damp shade

They come with tender spider joy

Happy to be safe.

Knowing if they trespass

Her milky white wrists

They will be met

With only laughter

.
