The garden beyond


The web stretched some more
and then snapped
No longer did any traitor threads
play hopscotch across life
The stickiness disappeared
The blue was steady too

Viewed from the other side
the ground was even
and the garden beckoned clear
with fresh promises of living flowers
and no shadows of spiders

The mid day sun poured down
The tangle broke, a gate swung open
A butterfly sailed free

into a gigantic net
the contours of which were spread too wide
to be recognized as a lie
