The Caterpillar

For IGWRT’s “mini challenge,” we are supposed to write about insects or bugs.


The caterpillar eats through many, many leaves,
To find enough sustenance for something;
It does not know yet what
It will be, what is coming or why,
It only knows to try
To eat through many, many leaves,
To find that which it’s seeking:

Finally, energy and a suitable place
To make a chrysalis, to await
To await a marvelous transformation.
