Wheels







Hannah over in the Garden, gave us a prompt today that aligned real well, with a Tarot card reading I had the other day.   I did get the Wheel of Fortune card-time to take a risk, I was told~

I thought it would be fun to combine the two-the card's meaning and the Wheel Spider!
How clever this stunning creature is!  





Fallen star
spirals in gold dust
tumbleweed fashion
eight spokes curled
into cosmic expression
spins faster n' faster
and
snowballs into
