Chrysalis


Thoracic segments, coarse to human touch;
as caterpillar, crept to spoil the fruit —
from under bush, it roved with snake-like head.

Leaf's fleshy underside within its clutch,
it lay in chrysalis to grow a suit
of rainbow-colored silken wings instead.

But will it now bring nutrient to such,
or will its nature turn it back to root
new pesty caterpillars in its tread?
