  1. Some wicked words accompanying a very wickedly vivid picture. 😉

  2. Nicely written. There’s no way to escape once fallen into the trap of the Black Widow. You say it so precisely in three lines. Loved it!

    Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  3. The male doesn’t have a chance!

  4. Yikes. Scary little things aren’t they?

  5. Good one!

  6. Great haiku! I wish I had the patience to write them…

    • Thank you, Kate 🙂 they can be tricky. Hard to come up with the middle line most of the time of 7 syllables. It takes some practice.

  7. Have I lost my comment or are they under moderation.. well let me write once again..

    I like the reference.. Widow Spider.. One stops and wonders…

    I am here.. Do visit me Lori Carlson..


    • Sorry Ramesh, they were under moderation. For some reason, I tend to get a lot of spam on this blog. And thank you. I will definitely stop by for a visit! My comment will be under the name Ravyne 🙂

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Re: above: I like the idea of writing to prompts, and I like Haiku, but I really shudder at black widow spiders. Looking forward to reading other haikus. 🙂

    • You are most welcome, Elizabeth… you should join Haiku Horizons.. they are one word prompts and usually quite clever ones. Have a wonderful week ahead 🙂
