Worship & Goddess: Aphrodite, Durga and Nirbhaya

This post is in response to Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge

Eros worshippers
Pay the price with lowered heads
Aphrodite reigns

*****

Amorous passion
Pay homage to Erotes
Aphrodite lures

*****

Goddess Durga cries
A nation worships shakti
Nirbhaya gang raped


Durga, Goddess of Power(Shakti), is worshipped by Hindus in different forms.
On 16 December, 2012, Nirbhaya was brutally gang raped and her boyfriend beaten by a group of six men in New Delhi, India. She ultimately succumbed to her injuries.
