caterpillar

once upon a

time there

was a

fuzzy

baby

caterpillar whose

appetite was quite

voracious

the caterpillar

ate and

ate and

soon its appetite was

sated

then it grew sleepy

and drowsed

on awaking sometime later

the caterpillar found

itself imprisoned

in a dreadful

dreadful

casing

which was bimpley

and itchy

and not at

all

what the fuzzy

baby

caterpillar

had been used to

it curled up and

cried

because it thought it

was ugly

and no one would know

it was actually pretty

inside

after an

interminable span

of time

the casing

cracked slowly

open

and was

flooded with sunlight

the little caterpillar

crawled out

sleepily onto a

twig

and then realized …

it was no longer a caterpillar

but neither was it the

ugly creature

in the casing

it had wings

elated, the former caterpillar

stretched and stretched

its new-found

wings

basking in the warm glow

of the sun

it felt the wind whizz through

the thousand tiny

hairs that graced

its wings

slowly

slowly

the wings were

dry and

strong and

ready for

flight

the former caterpillar

tentatively tested its

flying skills

first a timid flap

then a stronger stroke

finally it flew off

the twig into the

open air

wanting to see the

beautiful wings that

gave it such

exhilarating experiences

the former caterpillar

craned its neck

to look at itself

it was red and

furry

the former caterpillar didn’t

know whether to

laugh or

cry

because it was a

moth
