1904



gorging leaves
fill their caterpillar days -
butterflies emerge

That's an interesting angle..the caterpillar days do have a commitment to the future butterfly! Makes me wonder if the present does owe something to the future!

Susan said...

Sumana Roy said...

a butterfly is never without its caterpillar days...such a beauty Gillena...

Old Egg said...

Why don't caterpillars get indigestion? Thinking about it they probably do, so change their diet when they are butterflies! That's food for thought.

Oh how clever, Gillena, to write about metamorphosis - a natural, beautiful commitment. My hope for this world is that somehow, we will transform too, become like butterflies - beautiful.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I love contemplating this mystery. Beautiful!

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Metamorphosis.. ofcourse! Such a clever take on the prompt :D
Beautifully done.

Lots of love,
Sanaa

Appreciation of beautiful butterflies is enough to counter the squeamish feel for the wriggly caterpillars
