npm 24: spider, continued


I cannot let go of this line from "Dead Stars" by Ada Limon:
"I am a hearth of spiders these days: a nest of trying."
Start in the center and then follow the legs around clockwise starting with "spinning." I'm working on how to arrange it so readers don't need directions!


My project for NPM 2022:
This month I'm making "human stories to move human beings.  Human stories are more powerful for inciting action than counting carbon or detailing melting glaciers." (Favianna Rodriguez, from her essay "Harnessing Cultural Power," in ALL WE CAN SAVE.)
2 Gratitude for those who take the time to fix things
5 A comparison of beaver wisdom with human attempts to control water & fire


  1. You caught me in this web of a poem, making me read and reread until I could follow paths of thinking. So fun that Ada Limon's line would not let you go!

  2. What a wonderful line to inspire such a creative and visual poem! Love it!


Thanks for joining in the wild rumpus!
