caterpillars and butterflies
by i. m. crawling
the caterpillar (innately) Knows that s/he Is (in Essence) something soooo much more than caterpillar. ..but can he who crawls have even the most remote idea of Butterflight? ..do butterflies "come back from the dead" to tell caterpillars about the other side?
at times, i get the feeling that -- even though we can't help but think about it -- any attempt to describe Butterflight from the perspective of crawling... is an exercise in futility.
that being said, it is fun -- so long as the caterpillar doesn't take him/herself too seriously.
