Spider #JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 1st/17

I have decided to attempt Linda’s Just Jot It January Challenge (#JusJoJan) this year. Whether I’ll be able to post daily is another matter, but I shall try!

The Just Jot It January 1st prompt, brought to you by Barb of ghostmmnc, is: “Spider.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Barb as well! Here’s her blog: https://teleportingweena.wordpress.com/ .


On this first day of the new year
It is common to have no fear
To weave a spider’s web of dreams
Of targets that you wish to achieve
To brush those old cobwebs away
And allow new ones to make their way
Give yourself a fighting chance
Choose wisely, skills you wish to enhance
Small steps are better than none
Learn to walk before you run
The spider starts with just one strand
Before creating something grand

Ritu 2017

    Awesome, Sis! I love your poem!!! I amazed by this one and your previous post. I wrote an article for a local newspaper here already in mid December. I translated that article and scheduled it for Monday 9th. Different words but the meaning is the same. I am not surprised that we are going along so well since we have such similar determination in our hearts!
