Along came a Spider contest

A tree spider sat waiting
in the hollow of a trunk
in ambush for her prey
by stealth she would eat

no web just camouflage
patiently she waits
along came a lizard
she pounces on it

Darting with her sting
which starts dissolving
the flesh of her prey
she happily sups

contest: Along Came A Spider written 06/02/2013

    Shadow congratulations on your fine win, your poems put chills up my spine, do not like spiders in motion unless they're spinning a web. Warm Smiles, Connie

    hi Connie good or bad ? Spiders I would also rather leave alone, I suppose as poets if we can thrill or chill its a half decent poem Shadow x smiles

    Congratulations on your win. A tree spider must be very deadly to eat a lizard. Love, Joyce

    Arachnids are fascinating creatures, and your work accurately describes one.
