Spider web at sunset

Like Most Revelations
by Richard Howard

It is the movement that incites the form,
discovered as a downward rapture -- yes,
it is the movement that delights the form,
sustained by its own velocity. And yet

it is the movement that delays the form
while darkness slows and encumbers; in fact
it is the movement that betrays the form,
baffled in such toils of ease, until

it is the movement that deceives the form,
beguiling our attention---we supposed
it is the movement that achieves the form.
Were we mistaken? What does it matter if

it is the movement that negates the form?
Even though we give (give up) ourselves
to this mortal process of continuing,
it is the movement that creates the form.

majikmonkee Very cool. Spiders and insects fascinate me, it's cool how you can't see any web, just the spider floating in space.
