The Friendly Spider

I once met a spider

In the shady glades.

She offered me a smile,

And winked through pink shades.

She held up a spindly leg,

And shared a friendly glow.

I never step on spiders now,

I’d rather let them go.

    I love that line: “and winked behind pink shades” how cute! Sweet photo….very endearing.
    If I came across a spider with pink shades that looked adorable I’d let her go too~

      Thanks Judy…I believe there may be a run on pink sunglasses at the spider store! It’s found on the web…:-)

    Fun poem.
    Yesterday a spider posing as an insect took up residence in my bathroom. It only had 6 legs.

      Ahhh…spiders love bathrooms. I have a children’s story/poem idea for the bathroom spider. I needed to name them so my granddaughter would use the bathroom. 🙂

    So cute! I like the photomanipulation and poem to go with it.

      Thanks…I played with the photo THEN created the poem to go with it. Maybe I’ll do that again sometime. 🙂

    Amen to that. Let’s let them all go.

    This is cute.

    How cute this poem. I think it is important to show our kids we need to be respectful to insects too.
    Spiders in our house are caught and put outside with a friendly but urgent request to stay out of the house. ‘You have the whole garden for hiding and playing, okay?’.

      Yeah…I try to tell them too. Stubborn little pests…they just love the bathroom for some reason! 🙂

    Cute poem. Once, a long time ago in a distant galaxy, I was called Spiderman because I often took a tarantula named Rosie to school with me. She needed several pairs of glasses to cover her several pairs of eyes. Pink would have worked well.

Tell me something good...
