Tiny gray spider,
Heart-shaped brown splotch on her back
From nature’s quick kiss.


Sadly, I wasn’t able to catch a picture of the minuscule spider I met this afternoon. This is a pity because she was a pretty creature, soft gray with slender legs as well as a brown spot on her back. She blended in very well with the rusty fence rail. I’ve never seen a spider quite like this one!
