A Poem Takes Flight

~

Like a small caterpillar
My thoughts grow
Fed with nibbles of ink
And syllables

Bit by bit they become bigger
Until they’ve out grown
Their small skin – shedding
Unwanted ideas and trite phrases

Growing longer and wiser
My words curl up, take a break
Transform into a poem
Then spread their wings and fly

  1. I love your butterfly poem, Candy – your rhymes with bug!. I love the way it’s ‘fed with nibbles of ink and syllables’ – great rhyme – and sheds ‘unwanted ideas and trite phrases’ – what a way to describe editing!.
