Intricate Beauty


____________________________________________________________

The spider spins the silver casket,

The contour  so refined and classic;

The  naïve insect would least suspect,

This glistening tapestry to be its death trap,magic.

*

The pitcher plant starts to blossom,

And spreads its green and red all over;

The flies get attracted to the nectar and the pigments,

Which eventually drowns them to fuel the plant ,ever.

*

The jelly fish floats around so gracefully,

Its flowing tresses so gorgeous and bright,

The innocent prey , stunned  by this luminescence,

Is swallowed mercilessly in just a few seconds, tight.

*

These are such intricate beauties of nature,

Which seems to take a cruel twist, that is fain;

However, it is actually not vicious at all,

For that’s the way nature has designed the food chain.
