Metamorphosis

 

How does a caterpillar  become a butterfly.

How does it feel inside the chrysalis.

Is it aware of anything changing.

When does it become aware again.

 

How does it wait so patiently

to dry off its wings,  and fly.

Does it have any memory

of when it could only crawl.

 

How long does it think it will be,

before it is something else.

How did every molecule of its beautiful

wings know exactly what color

to choose.
