Spider Web Universe

In early morning mist,
seven glistening spider webs
lay flat atop the dwarf Korean boxwood.
Small, threaded, silky, milky-ways,
arachnid worlds of lives and deaths
and parents and their progeny,
banded by their sameness,
divided by a universe of leaves,
the distance measured not by light
but, rather, counted out
in clipped-hedge shrubbery years.
