POISED #WritePrompt Sue Vincent








The huge black spider waited,

Looking up with its large shiny black eyes.

Its furry feathered black back, eight legs

and one head joined,

its Body,

No segmentation needed.

It was waiting, just waiting until the desired

Afternoon afterschool kids

Would walk his way.


They would be his for the choosing.

Then the rain came pouring down

upon all the streets,


like a river deluge,

In the cracks in the rocks that were large enough

he would hide,

Tomorrow would be another day.

Β The End


A personal note: I wrote this in rememberance of the almost 3 inch x 3 inch hairy black Aussie spider that chased me down my sidewalk 2 years ago this October, leaving me ill for weeks with it’s poison, and scared me for life on my ankle.

    • Hi Liz, yes. I have a permanent reminder of that awful moment. What was so surprizing is that the huge black furry spider chased me and I couldn’t out run it. that is how fast that thing was. I have since found out that I wasn’t they only one to be bitten. They did manage to kill that vicious spider after two more people in our subdivision were bitten also.
