An egg on a leaf

Begins to gap open and half


I lift out my meager green crown

And consume the shell


I creep to the border

And devour my leaf


I grow so great that my hide is snug

I know I am ready


I drape myself upside down

And encase myself


In a few ages I begin to wiggle and breach my cocoon

I emerge brilliant and wet, and distend my wings


As I dry... I understand its time

I stretch my wings

And fly away
