Spider - Poem by Della Perry

Spinning delicate webs of lace
Planning each strand with care
Intercepting the unaware fly
Devouring its very soul
Eating its prey, before
Returning, bloated, to a silky home.

    i'm not too good at planning building projects, so i guess i wouldn't be a good aka successful spider.

    they are 'cool' creatures who may exist long after mankind no longer does. good luck to them.
    gee, before i read acrostic as the 'form', i actually noticed it was one BUT it took about 3 readings and didn't happen until i was reviewing your effective use of verbs (all with -ing endings!) spiraling to a conclusion. well done.
