The Spider’s Party – #Cinquain


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


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!
