The Cocoon Part II


The green caterpillar 

The silk webworm

Its cylindrical body crawls 

Its mandibles chew

It lives in order to die

Destined for the cocoon

The silk palace

The chrysalis 

Death of the old 

Its old body dies

It dies in order to live 

Its lives in order to die

Transformation 

Alteration 

Modification 

Miraculous change

The wings form

The wings emerge

As the wind guides

As the wind leads 

The monarch takes flight
