Spider's Web
Michael Escoubas


intricate as life
spun white
more exact than
Euclid's geometric calculations
laid delicate and strong
in perfect portions
of thread
in a basket of pine—
where will I look
for perfection
where will I look
for proof of God

Spider's Web
was a co-winner of the Wilda Morris Poetry Challenge in March 2018.




Michael Escoubas began writing poetry for publication in August of 2013, after retiring from a 48-year-career in the printing industry. He writes poetry because, early in life, his mother encouraged him. Michael also writes poetry because he believes poetry brings people together and that poets are menders of broken things. He is the author of six collections; the most recent is Ripples Into the Light, a collection partnered with photographs by Vandana Bajikar and designed to “rest the soul and calm the spirit.” Michael is Senior Editor and Book Reviewer at Quill and Parchment, an online poetry journal. He lives in Illinois.
