Dionaea

May 25, 2013

Hiding deep within
The impenetrable
Steam and flora of
The jungle wild is
Nature’s seductress:
The Venus flytrap.

A perfect killer, its
Neon green tendrils
Grasp the wet soil,
Waiting silently for prey.
Swaying leaves waft
An intoxicating aroma;
Tempting, luring,
Bringing the buzz of
Its unwitting prey
Ever closer…
Those patient moments
Must be the hardest
Part of all, until-

Snap!

The buzzing silenced,
She smiles a wicked
Grin, happy to devour
Her latest victim.
