Beware Of Webs - Poem by Rini Shibu

Soft and silky strands he ejects
He crawls up and down on the strands
Swings and climbs on the tree
Wind  drifts him from trees to  trees
He blocks the ways spinning the web
To catch the fly on sticky web
Patiently waits  hiding under leaves
Watching for prey with scary eight eyes
Hover fly hatched from the cocoons
Flies to the garden of macoun
Never knew there is a trap on the way
And the wings sticks on the glue
Scary and hairy eight legged critter
Pounce on the fly and sucks the juice
Fills up his belly and go to his mate
But cruel spider was unaware of his end
Who will be eaten  by his voracious mate.

    The spider web......invisible threads...the lofty skill adopted by the spider to catch the fly...all these have emulated the 'hidden danger' in any work....you have meticulously described the strategy adopted by the spider in your poetic style.....10 points to you.. (Report)Reply

    Hi Rini,

    A keen observer of nature, you are! And nature behaves exactly as you have written.

    How keenly, the spider builds his web! How he is endowed by nature to spin his web! A web that could stick a fly to it, but not the spider! And with a deadly venom to instantly immobilize his victim, so he could pray on it. The intrigues of nature is like this! ! Truly inconceivable.. And finally, in order source enough of the right nutrients for the next generation, the female spider has to eat him up; but not before she secures his genes to pass on to the next generation, in an awesome mating.

    Coming to think of it, the females of all species are equally deadly, it is not? ? ? Hehehe! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    A perfect 10+++ for this lovely poem!
