In the early spring
the caterpillar had one last task to do
after fretting for weeks
now it had a clue
Finding the exact leaf
a pod is being spun
no time for decorating
a battle to be won
A winter storm brewing
rain turning to sleet
the pod must be finished
must not be weak
In an area depauperate of butterflies
this transformation must take place
flowers and other wildlife
depending on its embrace
in a deep sleep
now is complete
a beautiful sight
living a purpose
the future is bright

This time I listened before I read. I found myself rooting for the caterpillar to come out victorious, on the other side… I may have gotten emotionally involved. 🙂
