Why Are You So Creepy?

Day 25 of the writing day challenge is, “think of a word and search it – use the 11th image for inspiration.” Well, I was visiting my mom and all of a sudden there was a spider. I hate spiders, they give me the heebie jeebies! So, spider was the word for my inspiration and that turned into a poem.

Why Are You So Creepy?

Beady eyes and eight legs crawling

Go on the other way I don’t need the scare

No don’t jump, that’s even worse

Don’t make me squeal or run away

I don’t need your beady eyes or eight legs crawling

With little hairs and creepy walking

I’d rather you stay in your own space

Flailing arms and ninja moves

Means you need to move higher

Eat your bugs and stay away

And maybe we can be friends

But with beady eyes and eight legs crawling

I really think I’ll stick with swatting

Why Are You So Creepy?


Have you ever picked a word and used the picture for inspiration? Let me know what you came up with!

    I often choose a word or sentence first… and go from there. I have stopped poetry… but i am going to start again this week as you have inspired me. One poem i started with…. the dark wings of fate… and to this day is my most descriptive captivating poem i have wrote. What a great post!
