The Spider’s Party – #Cinquain

Wb

Patient,
Hungry trapper
Prepares for visitors
To… “enjoy” macabre banqueting
And shows.
Visitors avoid her abode,
Fearing glistening fangs,
Vicious poison,
Demise.

This was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #139, in which we get to choose our words! I took the above photo on my morning dog walk. It was a misty, foggy morning, and the spider’s web in my neighbors’ tree had a lot of dew on it. I’m not a terribly good photographer, so I couldn’t get the web to show up better!

    It’s never an easy shot. I’ve found spiders aren’t especially obliging when it comes to where they spin their webs. Really needs a dark background. But when I do find the dark background, that background isn’t exactly picturesque. So, what I’m saying is that’s a good photo. Considering the perversity of spiders

    I have some of those big webs too! They are beautiful. One has a grasp on one of my bird feeders. I think though a strong wind might take it down. There was one like the one in your photo on my outside clothes line… but I didn’t get a chance to ‘capture it’. You have to have the right angle to catch that netted web!
