CATERPILLAR DREAMS

                                               CATERPILLAR DREAMS

Ah what wondrous happenstance,
For a worm to reach by chance,
The form of a beautiful butterfly,
And sip the dew drops where they lie,
On silken petals fragrant, sweet,
In forest lawn till I'm repleat.

For now I'm locked in this chrysalis,
Dreaming of a Lily chalis,
From which I'll sip the nectar sweet,
Where fairies dance on tiny feet,
In garden, glen and meadow land,
And apple trees in grandeur stand.

                                                       Judy Ball






(This just sortof came to me this morning when reading Don Johnson's poem "Butterfly Dreams. Let me know what you think. Is it a keeper?)

    Hey, what a sweet way to be inspired by another poet!! It actually almost looks like a poem that could fit either in the contest of fairies or of butterfies going on right now. Just tweak it for one of those contests and I bet it could do well!

    Like the fantasy and rhythm to the work..Enjoyed reading this afternoon..Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work..The poem was written in response to a contest..I believe that I am who I am from genetic traits that I have inherited(God knitted me together in my mother's womb) and what life and environment have endowed me..Sara
