I really like this!

You could play around with the haiku further if you'd like e.g.

lone spider
she keeps her own house
in my absence

Thanks Alan, your suggestions are always so helpful! I have been wanting to expand this into a tanka actually; will experiment with it.

Alan Summers said...

Tanka sounds good. I'll look forward to that.
