In the spring, the rose begins to bud
Deep inside the cloak of mysteries
The turning of the round clock's hands
Is but centripetal motion.
The weaving of the spider's web
Sets my thoughts to spinning
They spin the dreams of yesteryear
Which are only just beginning.

Wendy, I loved the play on words in this one, and the way a sort of gentle spinning is evoked through the poem. Also, you're the first person I've ever (is known the right word?) who knows the difference between centrifugal and centripetal force. Lord knows I can't spell it right, though. Very clever using centripetal to, in part, describe a rose. Before I get any more incoherent, I'll just say I enjoyed the poem.

Wow, intriguing piece, Wendy.  Love the  word choice and imagery, and especially the way the ending wraps up to "the beginning".
Well done.

My response wraps an echoing layer around that already offered by Mike and Michael. The clock, the rose, the web...all excellently chosen here, Wendy, to symbolize the centripetal flow of one's life...all life, to be more precise. Wonderful verse!
