Inside the caterpillar
are a few seed cells that
sprout within the chrysalis.
All else liquefies and feeds
this birthing transformation.
The butterfly emerges in all
its splendor filling its world
with flights of delight.
Within us, too, are sacred seeds
waiting for us to call forth our
transformation into Beings of Light
who illuminate not only our own
path but innumerable others as well.
And so it is. Amen.
