AnimalsToday my haiku is from March 18th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Animals, Birds, Insects, and Other Teachers, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Spiders”:

you think you are free
but spiders hatch in corners
hide webs to trap you

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

If you’re interested in the story of how The Haiku Book of Days series came to be, check out my previous blog post here. You can purchase this book on Amazon here

  1. Eight jointed spider
    legs move silently across
    a brand new web site.

    Arachnids owned the
    world-wide-web long before non-
    spiders stole the name.

    Do you suppose that
    spiders parents teach their young
    HTML too?
