All Change poem

All Change is one of my earlier poems and inspired by a summer theme. It was first published in Brian Wrixon’s Summer Anthology, Poets of Voices Strong (2014).


Oblong at first,
hairy and small,
lived on a leaf,
curled in a ball.

Slithered along
in search of food,
to build myself up,
ate all that was good.

Then came the time
to close my eyes,
cocooned in a cover,
quite a long while.

Along came Spring,
told me to wake,
time to push through,
make my escape.

Re-emerged with wings
in soft burnished gold.
transformed in sleep
to a beauty I’m told.

In summer I flit
from flowers to trees,
but the buddleia bush
is the best home for me.
