Little Miss Starwise stood by the train
Waiting for transport which soon came
There winched down beside her
a little black spider
which made Little Miss try to hide her
This is a little ditty that I wrote on Thursday 19 August 2015. You may be able to tell the Story behind it.
I was waiting on the train platform to catch the train to work, when to my surprise, a beautiful small black spider winched her way down beside me on my right. It was almost as though she ( why say “he” all the time ) was saying hello to me personally. The thing is she landed on the concrete, much to my alarm, as there were many Homo sapiens species ( people ) standing restlessly around. I tried sending a message telepathically to the spider, an image of being stepped on, which I imagined happening to me & it was not at all a pleasant thought. She could have been Charlotte.
To my greater alarm, the train arrived, so I quickly moved protectively closer to her, to shelter her from giant feet. Luckily, this little spider had her wits about her, and sensing vibrations on the ground, etc. she promptly began winching her way back along her beautiful thread, which was invisible to me, but must have still been anchoring her to her anchor point. I was relieved until the girl standing a few centimeters from the spider on the other side to where I was standing, lumbered forward and I thought her crooked elbow or lurching steps may propel her into my spider friend.
Well, here are pictures of my new acquisitions, being a beautiful sparkly silver Elephant key-chain and a gold-tone Lizard / Gecko eye-glass holder pin ( 1 3/4 inches in length) !! I bought the Ellie key chain, which I’ve attached to my handbag, from my local news-agency for $10. It has no maker’s mark on it at all, but I really love it and it is blingy and a good size, at 2 inches from the tip of her trunk to the tip of her tail, and just over 1 inch from top to bottom. It is good quality and heavy-ish too.
I was rather pleased to come across the gorgeous gold Gecko brooch, as I call her, because over the past 2 weeks my partner and I have been rescuing baby Geckos, as I’ll explain in a moment.
First I am going to say that although the Gecko cost me $19.95, I thought when I saw her, that it was another “sign” that I am on the right path at this stage of my Life.
