The Legend of the Dreamcatcher

Many moons ago a young
Native American maiden
was shown in a dream
how a spider web was spun.
She was then shown how
to weave a web and make
the first ever dreamcatcher.
The maiden was told that the
dreamcatcher would catch
bad dreams and strengthen
the connection between
creation (Mother Earth)
and the spirit world.
Only good dreams could
make their way through
the small hole in the center.
