The Butterfly

She sits unaware
And we watch silently
Her rich, vibrant wings
Marveling at her strength in delicate form
She knows what to do
She asks no one
Once a caterpillar bound to the earth
Surrendered to sleep
Awakened to beauty
Taking flight with new purpose
What can we learn from this?

Prompt: a poem about something in nature. Today I spent the afternoon at Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory.
