Both sides of the net

photoart - spaces in the spider web netting
Even arthropod eyes
hurtling down airborne highways
cannot register strings of spectral hues
one in two chances for the miniscule
to slipstream between or else a weighty rage
against sticky bonds and the gravitational pull
of the grave

but headway is not always safe passage
we blunder overboard, plunge from heights
without a safety net

Am with Real Toads in the Imaginary Garden today for the Flash 55 PLUS ‘Space
