Caterpillar and butterfly

A magical metamorphosis, from a methodical crawl

To carefree flight, happens out of sight

The only evidence, a broken cocoon

Once home to a caterpillar, now a butterfly

Beauty of that intelligence is unsurpassed

It can call our mind home, if we let it

The carefree flight of childhood is turned

Into rusty shackles of adulthood, an unconscious happening

Casting wistful looks at tender, paperlike wings of butterflies

Brings back memories, of childhood, chasing speckled flecks of color

When thoughts flitting around are given such beautiful wings

A miraculous transformation happens within the shell of the mind
