A Caterpillar’s Transformation

A vicissitude of fortune

created the transformation

a hellacious event

that boggles the imagination

Being neither prepared

nor excited

attached myself to a leaf

waiting for the uninvited

Life has been so simple

and complete

meandering around

easily with all these feet

Taking a nap

transformation has begun

there is no pain

no feelings to run

Upon awakening

realizing new things

seeing bright colors

now I have wings

Trying them out

drinking some sweet nectar

riding the wind

the view is spectacular

Complete freedom

a new life begins

filled with joy

while riding the wind
