Metamorphisis

Like a bat sleeping
the cocoon gently hangs
upon the massive red oak’s arm.

Gently-
And ever so lightly—
it does shake…

Tiny, little,
streaming
cracks
dance along the little egg sack.

A wing of silent, starry blue protrudes
then another-
And now a leg-
And several more!

Beautifully blue the butterfly glistens.
Her wings flutter freely
Singing a note of life newly grown
And yet a tinge of melancholy
it seems she does echoe
of a life long ago.

To the skies she soars
In search of something more

A butterfly is born…
