Imago in waiting

She senses
unseen things
happening around her
urging a world forward
leaving her behind
to live
the
well ordered
predictable
life
of
larva
pupa
chrysalis
formless
timeless
drifting
behind drawn blinds
behind silkspun walls
in her milklit cocoon

this is lovely. I've been thinking of writing a poem about this same subject...you beat me to it. :)

Thank you, C. But no, I didn't beat you to it. Write yours. I'm sure there are as many different poems on any given theme, as there are people. And I'm looking forward to your take...
