A caterpillar
in its cocoon, so are we
in our bodies

biding the moment
to be a butterfly, free
among the flowers

silent majesty
tender voice of high summer
flying into fall

an empty cocoon
you flew like a butterfly
never to return

Written for DVERSE POETS’ PUB’s Meeting the Bar: Haiku Sequence Prompt

Especially remembering my father who passed on earlier in the summer.
