Caterpillar - Haiku

Image Source : Here
A baby caterpillar  
New to the world - hides
Cocoon of fear . 

Vibrant dreams mature 
Wings slowly sprout - sheds fear
Butterfly flies high . 

Written for the  Carpe Diem Haiku Challenge . Today's prompt is ' Caterpillar ' .

  1. Many layers to your poems. I sense it refers to more than butterflies! Where are the Butterflies

  4. well-written....I imagine it is frightening to be a slow-crawling creature; then, after a good 'nights' dreaming, ready to fly away from any danger,,,,
