Precarious Life

spider partially hidden in stalk of hosta flowers

Marquise in her lair,

Toes on the fateful strings to

Precarious life.

The story so far…

Patient Marquise (September 5)

Her colours unfurled,

Our patient Marquise

awaits a sumptuous feast.

Upstart Princess (September 3)

Radical design,

More a net than a web, by

an Upstart Princess.

New Queen (August 29)

New queen emerges,

Staking territorial

Claims. Who will prevail?

Web Strands (August 19)

Only strands remain.

End of an empire, or start

Of new adventure?

Web Empress (August 18)

Spider on your web,

Empress of a tiny realm.

Predator or prey?
