In my cocoon I vibrate asleep-shut out from the light

A thin veneer of day glows through the silk layers that hold me fast

My tensiled tomb unravels when a breeze or a breath spins it 'round

Sound silent as the thoughts that hold me in-but slowly I am transformed

I feel a stutter in time-a flutter of freedom in shadow

Illusive truth forms the buds of wings

I push the boundaries-break through the limits of my existance

The brightness of light leaves me dizzy-it's aura surrounds me

A tentative spread and then I sail on a sea of air-giddy, weightless and trembling

A positive poem where a miracle of life is engendered: also deeply philosophical.. As life can be seen as transformation. Anne.
