Caterpillar Dreams

IMG_3636Slowly I crawl
feeding
blade by blade

on the edge
falling and feeding

can’t stop eating
yet hungry all the time

wondering if these leaves
will fulfill me

haunted or blessed
by hints of a larger life

I dream of flight
spun from silk

A preparation
for a slow death

through a daredevil
dance of dissolution

my larval life liquefies
imaginal buds proliferate

I surrender to sleep
and a surprise transformation
