Poetry Friday: Spider Haiku, On the Spot Writing

It's Poetry Friday before I know it! Teen Read Week has flown past!

I tested myself to write a haiku that's been sweeping through my thoughts. Here it is:


Shivering

Hunched on icy lines
spiders curl into cold balls
frosted until dawn


Hm. Maybe the On the Spot Writing is going to need Saturday Revision.

No revision necessary: it's perfect! I saw one this morning that looked just that, too, poor thing.

You totally encourage my words, Laurie! Thank you!

I love it! Makes me think of little spider cakes, until I see a sad little frozen one outside.

I agree with Laurie and Holly. Did you happen to write this a few days ago when we woke up to frost? Maybe one of these days I'll join in the Poetry Friday fun!

It is a sharp enough image to make me shiver! Good job.
