5 words about spiders. A few times

Esther asked for a 5 word story about spiders. I didn’t think it was fair. Spiders deserve more than 5 words. They are creepy but misunderstood. A bit like me. So here’s a few 5 words in a row.


Spiders have too many legs

Crawling secretly on uncovered skin

Under your clothes and within

Places they should never be

Or see. In the dark

To park. And wait. Late

Into the night. All eight

Of those legs. Suddenly awake

You scream. At the unseen

Where those legs have trod

Delivering an octopod love letter

A lobster might be better

  1. I like when the unseen, but suddenly felt, spider makes someone do the “wiggle dance”. šŸ’ƒšŸ¼
    Spiders don’t bother me. I wish the Black Widows would stay away from “people” areas, like the mailbox and the door.

    Yep… definitely need for than 5 words.šŸ˜‰
