Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: Spider Webs


I stare up at the ceiling
of the room that is almost mine
and I notice a little spider web
and I think I should sweep it away
But maybe it took the spider
a long, long time to make it
who am I to destroy her work
to take a broom and break it.
I look up, and then I smile
I pat the dog and snuggle down
and decide to leave it for awhile.
