Chrysalis

Hungry to the banquet came I

Starving with desire

My soul’s net skimmed out

Captured the light and drew it in

Hungry to the banquet came I

But a tiny spot.

Wriggled and burst out

And searched for my first rich meal

Hungry to the banquet came I

Thirsty for fulfillment

I nibbled my way through

Each green offering of wisdom

Hungry to the banquet came I

Eating ‘til my skin burst

To make room for more

And then ate refreshed and renewed

Hungry to the banquet came I

Until at the last

My old wounds burst and revealed

A chrysalis of emerald

Hungry to the banquet came I

And now I can rest

Until once again

My skin be riven to reveal

A spirit refreshed
