I thought of writing a poem about a butterfly today. I looked up the different stages of development: (1) egg, (2) larva (caterpillar), (3) pupa (chrysalis), and (4) butterfly. I decided to focus on the perspective of a caterpillar. If it took the perspective of a human- what would it say about its life?
Everyone knows we come from eggs.
It is God’s design.
We are all born into a beautiful, green landscape
With plenty of food to eat
So we may grow and expand
Until we reach our “perfect” size.
Then we are finished with God’s work
And we are given the means
To create a holy sanctuary
Where we go to rest
In eternal peace.
