Flight of the Caterpillar

The caterpillar, Who spends half of its life Bound to the ground, Or clinging to a leaf, Spins a cocoon and falls asleep, But who, can you tell me, When it emerges with its beautiful wings, Teaches it to fly?

Lovely one. Your work is short, simple, yet there is so much depth in the question. It's one of those questions that leaves us thinking all the day.. Always, Laura

Reminds me of the saying, "Good things come to those who wait"...I would like to fall asleep and wakeup up beautiful! Nicely written :)
