NaPoWriMo – Day 10

Where there are flowers can spiders be far behind?! C’est la vie! Beauty and the Beast go hand in hand it seems in the real world as in our imaginations πŸ˜‰ Often, the Beast uses Beauty to lure its hapless victim into the trap. And ever so often, Beauty succumbs – oblivious to lurking danger, lost in the joy of a magical moment, susceptible to the Beast’s powerful hunger. Nature and indeed humankind are full of examples πŸ˜›

But this Haiku is not the result of such lofty thoughts πŸ˜‰ It’s really just about the spider and its web – this one I photographed after an exhausting battle with my focusing skills, at Panhala,Β a hill station in the state of Maharashtra, India which is home to one of several Forts built by Shivaji, King of the Marathas and warrior extraordinaire!Β 

So here I am celebrating the eternal tussle between Beauty and the Beast πŸ˜›


Also wanted to let my readers know that I’m traveling until Sunday, so I might not be able to post until then, in which case, will catch up when I get back.Β 

Have a good week ahead People πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Heather πŸ™‚ Am at home in Goa and chilling out as one can only do in Mom’s house and the house where one was a child once πŸ™‚

      That clip is amazing and what are the odds that you like David Attenborough??!! Really, if this goes on, I’ll beging to suspect we’ve been separated at birth πŸ˜‰ I’ve grown up watching him on National Geographic! I love watching wildlife on TV and of curse in the wild πŸ™‚

      1. I can understand if people aren’t into Anne of Green Gables, but I don’t think there isn’t anyone who doesn’t like David Attenborough. He’s my favorite πŸ™‚
        (And side note just for fun – in college I majored in biology, with minors in chemistry and psychobiology, so I suspect we’ve got similar backgrounds there as well!)
