Bungee Jumping For Dummies

My FB friend and blogger Sangeeta Khanna,of Delhi,  is a botanist, antioxidant researcher, nutritionist, someone who studies and practices traditional indian medicine and cooking, trekker, birder, and photographer.  She is blessed with a green thumb and a garden, something most of us city dwellers cannot enjoy.

Despite her numerous and wide interests, she still gets enticed with little things happening in nature, and photographs them for us to enjoy. 

Like here below......

sheltered by
the long arm of the leaf,
nibbling on the surface
he would often
venture out
on the green bridge
and make his way across
laboriously dragging
applauded by
the various
dicotyledonous ladies
and some even lobular
and in whorls.

One day,
he felt
a bit different,
but still wanted to cross,
till he spied the
contorted rope
and decided
to bungy jump.

He swung
on the rope,
and lost it,
till he realised he was flying.

The rope had sprung back,
because he had
now become a butterfly !
