LikeLike Reply What an amazing viewpoint…but then, I should know this is what you contribute by now…incredible work. You’re a very gifted person and I am blessed to know you. LikeLike Reply Oh, you are the sweetest! I saw those pink, fluffy clouds, and all I could think was: “Belinda would like those. I have to get free of the wires.” But then, I really liked the wires in the end. You’ve made my life richer, paying more attention to sunsets and appreciating every day. Thank you!! LikeLike Reply May I ask permission to re-blog this? Beauty should be shared, grin. It touched my heart to inspire anything in anyone, thanks for that. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I’d be delighted! You are a wonderful friend. Blessings, Brenda LikeLike Reply The words paint a picture but the photograph enhances it! LikeLike Reply Thanks, I was quite surprised by that picture. It spoke to me in a way that the actual place didn’t. I learned something from it, but I’m not sure I can put into words what that was. LikeLike Reply I woke up this morning a bit anxious about how to handle my day. I had a businesmeeting, a doctor appointement and so on. Then I read about your spider- bus ……And those words talked to the little girl inside of me who really believed that it was a bucket full of gold at the end of the rainbow. That little girl who seeked shelter in her fantasy when she was growning up. Suddenly after all this years, this Trolley spider -bus made me think of her. And that web was like a shelter for me during the rest of my workingday. If I fell, I was safe, the spider -web would catch me before I hit the ground. Thank you for that. LikeLike Reply I’m so happy that was true. We have such strength inside us, and I’m happy I helped you remember where yours lives. 🙂 We need fairy tales. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yes we surely do! 🙂 Thank you again 🙂 LikeLike Reply I love the picture!!!! I love sunsets actually. All of them LikeLike Reply Yes, they are soul-lifting, as though the sun was sad to see us go. LikeLike Reply Brenda, I usually do everything to avoid power lines in photographs, but you incorporated them and made them the theme of your Haiku. I enjoy seeing things from different perspectives and enjoyed your post! By the way, thanks for liking my Atlanta Aquarium Video. I enjoyed making it. LikeLike Reply I usually avoid power lines, too. I thought I would hate the photo, but I was afraid I would miss the light when I tried to move away from the lines. So I snapped the picture, just trying to have the lines head up the frame. And it turned out, I liked that better than the later photos. LikeLike Reply Well, it made for a great shot and it inspired a beautiful haiku! LikeLike Reply Yes, photos are their own art. Sometimes they look just like I think they will, and other times, they have some extra quality… Thanks for your kind words. LikeLike Reply Very unusual shot, the silhouettes really do look like cobwebs across the sky. Your words painted a wonderful picture in my mind, lovely imagery 😀 x LikeLike Reply Thank you!

LikeLike Reply You’re welcome 🙂 I know what you mean, meeting other people who share the same passions is what makes blogging so worthwhile! x LikeLike Reply Yes, just so. I like seeing your dragon pop up. Are you guys dealing with falling leaves? I was out raking yesterday. The bins are all full. LikeLike Reply Lol thanks 😉 yes raking leaves is ongoing throughout autumn and into winter, never-ending! At least it keeps us warm 🙂 x LikeLike Reply It’s good exercise. And keeps you in the sunshine. 🙂 LikeLike Very true 🙂 x LikeLike Haha! It does look like that! LikeLike Reply Excellent! I’m glad you can see them too! LikeLike Reply It kind of does look like a spider web. But you know, it is not near as elegant or lovely made. LikeLike Reply You’re right. The spiders beat us hands down. 🙂 LikeLike Reply The criss-cross of the urban spiders… Nature reflected. LikeLike Reply We are a poor second to the beauty of the real spiderweb. Yet, we have a certain beauty. Thanks for commenting! LikeLike Reply We are a poor second….I remember waking up one morning to the glistening webs of hundreds of spider webs. The morning sun was just right. It was sight I’ll never forget. But then you are right: we humans have a beauty all our own (reflections of nature in our own special way). LikeLike Reply Yes, exactly. You are a kindred soul. I’d sit down for tea with you any day. 🙂 LikeLike Reply The feeling’s mutual. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Beautiful sky…all pinkish…very nice post. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I didn’t see the cobweb at all until I uploaded the pictures. I drove out of my way to get away from the wires in that shot to get a clearer shot of the sunset, and then I didn’t use any of those. Life is funny that way. 🙂 Namaste, Brenda LikeLike Reply Yep – definitely an urban cobweb. 🙂 very cute haiku. LikeLike Reply The spider-bus is the bane of the car-fly. 🙂 LikeLike Reply oh yes….. we have many of those around these here parts…. LikeLike Reply LOL LikeLike Reply Thoughtful..
