the praying mantis
eats the spider head first --
the gardner smiles

    If this is a Haiku, should the second line not be 7 sylllables? Am I reading it wrong?

    It is REALLY called a PRAYING mantis LOL..true it does prey on things BUT it is called PRAYING because of how it holds its arm& pinchers as if in PRAYER

    Awesome Haiku. I like the gardener's smile part. You may like to edit the first line for typing error replacing 'praying' for 'preying'. Thanks for your message of congratulations. I owe my win to your invitation. Love and Good wishes, -Mohammad
