Grit & Perseverance

Black Swallowtail
The caterpillar,
        interesting but not exactly lovely,
humped along among the parsley leaves
        eating, always eating. Then
one night it was gone and in its place
        a small green confinement hung by two silk threads
on a parsley stem. I think it took nothing with it
        except faith, and patience. And then one morning
it expressed itself into the most beautiful being.
