Humans quite indicative to butterflies, moths have their own alchemy of metamorphosis.

Often quite resilient,
an air of resistance echos
A possibility good can come from change,
the question that always plagues

Bitter sweetness of indifference,
shrug off inhibiting cocoon
Wings poised, ready
flight with uncharted winds

More than once close casualty,
smothered by blanket of selfish love
Cutting edge of personification,
begin the meta morph from within

Surreal providence withstanding,
the transmutation of essence begun
Barbed tastes left behind, gone
emptied shackles of solitude exasperated

Soaring higher than before,
wings full tilt, lofted
More esoteric form of self born,
alchemy of human metamorphosis resounds

To change from a worm to a butterfly
That takes a special eye
Sighted distantly
Heighten instantly
A complete turn around
Trumpets sound.

This poem excels - very publishable.

Such an excellent display of imagery and heart felt emotions.

A possibility good can come from change,
the question that always plagues

A masterpiece of an explanation that seems to plague all of us.

Welcome to Authors Den. I look forward to reading more or your poetry.

And the metamorphosis continues, on and on, forever.
Makes life exciting, don't you think? When we welcome
change with open hearts, the gifts we receive are abundant.

So good to read you again, Nichole.

Love & Light,

I missed you. So nice to hear from you. This is quite a gem you've penned. Change can only come from within. One must heal on the inside before he can hope for the metamorphosis to occur. Happy Holidays to You and Yours. Peace and Blessings to You Always, Paul.

Dear friend, I can't tell you how happy I am to see you back! Yes... and after a metamorphosis, which may not have been devoid of difficult moments, as metamorphosis - thus growth - are, it is indeed an awesome pleasure to see you "soaring higher than before".
Many blessings of Love&Light*
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 11/17/2005
Jung's theory of alchemy, the philospher's stone, turning base metals into gold, equivalent to the human psyche, as is the metamorphosis of the cocoon to the elusive butterfly. Your metaphor is spot-on! I love the line "A possibility good can come from change." Welcome to the den, Nicole.
