New Year visitor
Spider joins celebrations
Steals the spotlight
A happy new year to you. It was so good to connect last Friday. Lovely haiku and a stunning photo. It would make a good prompt you know. 😉

Yes, I enjoyed our chat on Friday. I only just found your comment here, so we’ve already agreed the prompt now, via FB, and I’ve said Happy New Year to you already, too!
I have other spider pictures. There is a spider in my blog header, in front of the green door, but you need to look at a larger image to see its web.
Here’s the link to another one of my posts with a spider picture https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2014/10/08/wordless-wednesday-desensitisation-therapy-for-miss-muffet/
All best wishes,
That’s an impressive web!
Happy New Year dear friend! Let’s hope that 2018 is the pinnacle of our writing years. Of course, I’ll say the same thing next year at this time. 🙂
Happy New Year to you, too, dear friend. Perhaps we should wish for both of us to climb a few rungs further up the writing ladder in 2018. If we reach the pinnacle when we’re both still so “young” (!!!), what more would there be to aim for in our lives? 😉
I know a lot of people don’t like spiders, but I love them . . . in fact, the spider and web’s appearance seem like a good-luck omen for your 2018, Sarah! Take care!
I do hope it is a good luck omen! Spiders are so clever with their intricate web designs. I never turn them out of the house, although I used to have to rescue them from the floor when my dog was younger, as she got too curious and sometimes squashed them. Now she knows better and leaves them alone.
Wishing you a happy and productive 2018, Leigh 🙂
Brilliant pun! And a fab photo, I hope she’s enjoying her stay 🙂
She is above our kitchen table, where we eat all of our meals, so she has plenty of company. There were some tiny flies about, that came in with a plant from outside and were really irritating, but she has dealt with them most efficiently!

You don’t need spotlight with that web xxxxxxx
It is impressive the way it has weaved the web between those three lights, though. It must be nice and warm there, when the lights are on! xxxxxxxx
Beautiful, even about nature as Haiku 1st intended.
Thank you, Scott. Most of my haiku are about nature. I’m a bit of a purist re the rules of this poetic form, as far as it’s possible when written in English rather than Japanese. I like to stick to the 5, 7, 5 syllable count, too, and get very slightly irritated when people think that writing and posting three lines with any old syllable count and not even a mention of nature or the seasons, constitutes a haiku poem. But who am I to say? If they enjoy writing it that way and it makes them happy, then so be it!
Maybe it’s a Loku instead of a Haiku 🙂 I don’t always follow the seasons or nature rule, but I do try hard to stick to the 5-7-5 rule. Guess it’s the English Teacher in me.
Bravo! The spider – and the photographer-poet – get a round of applause! Seems an auspicious, artistic start to the new year.
Thanks, Sunshine 🙂 It was a husband-wife collaboration, as Mister was the photographer and I the poet. We had a competition with the photograph, but he took the better shot. I believe it is also going to be the official picture prompt for this week’s Friday Fictioneers, as Rochelle loves spiders!

Love this, Sarah! How on earth did I miss it? Sheesh.
Well we’ve chatted, wished each other Happy New Year and all that stuff…
Just wanted to let you know I loved this Haiku and shall go back to writing my FF!
