Weaving spider,
a dreamcatcher’s web- –
dressing it a bit
more difficult.
Designing love
by hand
means listening
to its needs.
Breathing into it
pieces of heart- –
bits of soul, I risk
losing a child- –
an impending
letting go.
I’m never ready
to give them up- –
these seedling
extensions of self.
I do
the poem.

You are
my dreamcatcher.
