the butterfly

had no idea

it would be that

as a lonely, homely caterpillar

on it’s big trek

to eat and nourish its body

on its pilgrimage up the most inviting tree

step by step

it made its way

with absolute uncertainty

an innate knowing and sense of purpose.

At the right time

in the right tree

it built its bed

and went to sleep.

it’s most amazing dream

a full shift of reality

it awoke and spread its wings

beauty emerged

now flittering by and by

taking in the essence and beauty

from flower to flower…
