Light, fragile, buoyantly beautiful
and strange they emerge from
woolly woven tombs and skins
of hairy fur and no wings.
Just legs, too many and multipede
in creepy ambulation from plant to twig
avoiding the crushing boot and pecking beak.
Do they know, what they are and will be?
Do they crawl in faith, miracle filled
Or do they toil, in their
earthbound blind and brown dimension
to fall into chrysalis, not knowing that
may my cocoon be wrought
by Your Faithful and Loving Hands,
May my tomb be rent
by His Faithful and Fierce Sword of Light,
and may my cage be carried
and left behind in moments
