Mundane Monday #177: creature built

OOOOooooo, maybe I should save this for Halloween, but I am going to use it anyhow.

For Mundane Monday #177, the theme is a photograph of something creature built.

We were leaving in the early morning and P nearly walked into this web. Then we both stopped and took photographs. It’s hard to capture the web in focus! When I moved to another angle, the spider is visible but the web can’t be seen with the white porch as a background. The spider is floating in space.

Link your photograph or send a message and I will list it next week.

Last weeks Mundane Monday #176, the theme was bones.

KL Allendorfer submits a fascinating project with students: Assembling the bones.

 

 

 

 

admit deny

For mindlovemisery’s prompt: opposing forces. The prompts are admit/deny and presence/absence.

The pairs bring up my current sadness right away. I am struggling with the realization that we have a pervasive legal substance that works at the opiate receptor, is all over the US, and I have to send out urine tests for ALL of my chronic pain and opiate overuse and anyone on any controlled substance. You say, “but it’s legal”. I say, “Overdose and death risk. I can’t ignore it.” Here is the resulting poem.

admit deny

admit to yourself you deny your addiction
the presence of the drug means the absence of the one I love
