#SomethingDifferent 8 – Another Poem by The Chocolate Lady!

Once upon a time, I wrote poetry!

Somewhere deep inside my #LetsDiscuss2020 #DiscussionSunday post about my regimen vs. impulse posting, I posed the question if anyone thought it might be fun for me to post some of my poetry here on my blog. Well, a couple of people showed interest, and I appreciate that. As for the rest of you, you are welcome to just click or scroll on by if you aren’t poetry people (I promise, I won’t be the least bit offended)!

This one was written in 1974 for my name change ceremony (long story)!

Change

The caterpillar crawls slowly
a worm over mud
curled on moss
climbing a redwood
twig or a
mountain
stem
with seas of icy green
but it only moves on
to eat of the sweet green
never to notice any other
color.
Then later in its life it
realizes how dull it lives
just leaves, just stems
just…

Then one day                    it blooms
lovely                                               colors
butterfly-2712149_640orange                              yellow
               red deep red
and it                                 flits
and it                                               flutters
and it                                                              flies
and it                                               flounces
from                                   pink
to                         gold
to           rainbows
of
beautiful
               flowers.
