Book Overview

The Caterpillar Gets Its Wings

The below poem, Caterpillar, is taken from the book.

Hungry caterpillar,
Eager to indulge,
Savor every bite.
Drink up this world.
Moving from leaf to leaf,
Tasting all in your path,
That which nourishes your body
And that which tries to poison you.
Munching on everything
Until it becomes part of you,
Until you’ve taken in so much
You can no longer feast
But instead must take a reprieve.
Rest from this world.
Break free from it.
Cocoon yourself away.
