Treasures of The Spider

Treasures of the Spider

Spider!
Beware of 
the night feeder.
Tiny bat wings, swifter,
than the absence
of light, silent, merciless
terror. 

By morning,
I survey the remnants
of your web, rent and empty
 of you, just tiny whispers
of your once, existence.

Your uneaten prey,
all neatly wrapped 
and dangling-
as a reminder
of all 
that we
can't take to heaven

Suzanne Delaney

Written for a  Golden Orb spider I 
named Spideress.
