La Hilandera

spider My body: My Eyes
Open or closed windows
It matters not a jot

spread eagle on the net
with finger tip accuracy
the sight of prey

lingering on the lips
appetite and hunger slips
inert into the receiver

watch where the waiter
on droplet embroidery
wraps her wares to dry

or fishing in the air to snatch
a blind,wind-blown catch
reeled and spun

and when the harvest’s done
weaver packs her threads
– and moves on

Opening lines taken from “Mi Cuerpo: Mis Ojos” by fellow blogger José Adolfo Segura Cabezas. La Hilandera is Spanish for weaver/spinner
