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.

December Haiku Share

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. 😉
