Spiny Little Spiders or Fairy Nests? You Decide!

During a recent outing we came across this sweet gum tree. I'd never seen one before and found the prickly little seed pods intriguing and fascinating. They littered the ground and hung from the trees like spiny little spiders.

Dark and dangerous
Like spiny thorny spiders
Seeds ensconced inside

A dark, spiny globe
Full of trails and darkened paths
Tiny fairy nest
