Simple Metamorphosis (Prose)


myself as I
they as they

writers soared heights
I, background eyes
knowledge not of verse
hid cocooned

word love peeled
layers, pupa burst
abruptly changing

immature ~
grown ever more
and in time
perhaps complete

these crystalline wings
unfurl, desire to coat
styles, structures
till I fly uninhibited
as other butterflies

Shared with Dverse Poetics

Anthony has us writing – Evolution is a gradual process of development and I wanna know how have you evolved as a poet.

I started my blog 18 months ago not contemplating writing poetry, but with reading and learning over those months I became addicted and received encouragement to continue. Though not quite the butterfly as some are, I hope to fly soon.
