Spider (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #25)   Leave a comment

Today I saw a gigantic spider 
Making a journey up my trembling arm
Now I have an unexpected rider
I really hope that it means me no harm

It froze in place once I started moving
The moment tense as we met eye to eyes
It's countenance seem quite disapproving
And no doubt it was planning my demise

Then my hand moved over to the paper
I brought it forth and asked him to hop on
My friend decided to end the caper
I let it out; in a flash it, was gone.

I hope my friend, the spider, will not deign
To grace my house with his presence again
