The Great Re-Weaving by Eila Kundrie Carrico

June 30, 2016 | By | 2 Replies More

A web is woven
suspended, sparkling.

Spider dreams
a new dream
a new story.

She creates
and she waits.

She knows
the web will break.

Patient, she watches
from her place of power
in the center
and then

to create again.


Eila Carrico grew up in rural central Florida, and her curiosity led her down a meandering path of discovery from a young age. She was inspired by her studies in journalism, anthropology and religion to travel around the world and teach in Paris, Ghana, Thailand and India. She then studied yoga and embodied archetypes for nine years before completing a master’s degree in Engaged World Psychology and then an MFA in Creative Writing and Consciousness in San Francisco.

    I see the spider. The web. Love “spider dreams”. Nice imagery. Enjoyable read.

  2. Anora McGaha says:

    I love the sounds and image in the first lines. “Suspended, sparkling” delight. I also love the simplicity and strength of “She creates and then waits.”

    There is such inherent wisdom and clarity in the poem. “She knows / the web will break.”

    If you haven’t read any of Lola Haskins’ work, I think you’d really like it.

    Thank you mightily for contributing to When Women Waken, and for being a pleasure to work with. Gracious and helpful. –Anora McGaha, When Women Waken
