I am a Chameleon

I am an old porch
Leaning in on a bent back
Weathered and rotting

Aha! Something enticingly fun
comes into view
turning me into my butterfly self.

Orange and dotted, 
flitting among the lilacs, 
diving in for a taste,
enjoying life once again.

I am distracted by a worm
Instantly irritated and mad,
turning into a mud puddle.

Thank you William. I do not try metaphors often, so this was a stretch. I am glad for one comment. It is sweet of you.
