Hands Crusted with Paint

Globs of sage tinted primer adhere in nonconformist
patterns to my hands; more than green thumbs
from painting my neighbor’s house exterior.
Absorbed in our individual tasks…
a spider colleague expanded a ladder segment web.
Dangling trapeze style as I repositioned the ladder;
swinging to and fro until set in place it would begin again.
Sun cast shadow of a spinner at work making a web;
My brush diligently applies a protective coat to siding.
Side by side a fall afternoon spent with a silent companion.
