Today’s poem was another piece penned en route to Konstanz. I was experimenting with a new form and aiming to incorporate some alternative word choices whilst still staying true to the core theme of transformation. On rereading my poem today I am quite pleased with the result, particularly as it still makes me feel how I felt when I initially wrote it.
The chrysalis broke through operatic heartspace, challenging her evolution.
At first soft movement steeped in soul grace, cracking open her resolution
The chrysalis, shell-shocked dramatically displaced
aware of the self-improvement
Knew that she’d move on
Change was fast-paced,
Wings and prayers spoke in a veiled solution
The chrysalis, foresaw no gain in the closed case
decided to get her groove on
Ruby red shoes on
Heaped with good grace,
Flight relies on the execution
