Dinnertime

spider on web with prey wrapped in spider silkLate season Princess

packages dinners for the

children she’ll not know.

The story so far…

Indulgent Marquise (September 22)

Beautiful fall day,

Marquise indulges herself

with a sunlit snack.

Gravid Marquise (September 18)

Good hunting leads to

Voluptuous results. Our

Gravid Marquise feasts.

Come Sit (September 17)

Careful where you sit!

The Marquise in her web may

snare too big a meal.

Precarious Life (September 7)

Marquise in her lair,

Toes on the fateful strings to

Precarious life.

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?
