Transformation

Under cover
in the shadows
cocooned
elusive
camouflaged
shielded in self-made walls
armored
yet fragile
motionless
with time
transforming
changing
emerging
reborn
finding wings of delicate lace
courage to take flight
a gentle soul
floating on the wind
graceful
colorful

beautiful

About Suzanne Parlee

I have been writing poetry since I was a little girl. Now an adult I find such comfort in words, in books, and the written word in general. I am from New Brunswick, Canada, a province surrounded by The Bay Of Fundy, and The Saint John River, only one hour's drive from the Maine/USA border. Beautiful province!

    If poems were automobiles, then , “Transformation ” is the epitome of a well designed ,sleek ,stylish model with great poetically-dynamic features.A poem from the narrative point-of-view from inside a chrysalis.

    This one is a splendidly woven tribute to nature and it’s many wonders- the ”Transformation” of a butterfly from the stage of cocoon is not merely a biological phenomenon here but an ’emerging’ from a ‘shielded self-made wall’. The inherent message quite sublime.
