garden spider

December Haiku Share

I write a surprising number of haiku about spiders, although the prompt for this one was actually “weaving”. Share a haiku about gardens, spiders, weaving, dew, or webs.

garden spider –
weaving the dew
into its web

  1. oh, I do envy your spider haiku! 🙂

    white bones
    she buries a fish
    in the garden

    • What a nice thing to say, angie. 🙂

      I can totally relate to your haiku– we have a “pet cemetery” under our maple tree, populated by bettas and dwarf african frogs buried in plastic easter eggs.

  2. not a single star
    out of place
    in the Milky Way…
    the garden gate
    left ajar all night

  3. the winter garden
    where false hellebore appears
    without fair warning
    my sister’s mind a landscape
    scored with fault lines . . . and furrows

    (opening verse from “my sister’s world,” Atlas Poetica: vol. 8, Spring 2011)

  4. somehow
    in the moon’s hidden face
    a garden
