We haven’t done spiders yet. Share a haiku about spiders, all sorts of bugs and insects, afternoon, sultriness, or one that uses alliteration. Bonus points for “s” alliteration. 😉

sultry afternoon

I’ve been reading Acorn: a journal of contemporary haiku ever since I came back from Haiku North America last year. I like to spend a while just enjoying new journals, and trying to get an idea of their “voice” before I submit. This is the first time I submitted to this fine journal, and I’m pleased to have the following haiku included, and to share the pages with so many haiku poets I have come to admire and respect.
