Chrysalis


Where are you?
Right here, little one.
It’s very dark.
Yes, it is.
Are you cold?
No, not really, are you?
No, well maybe a little.
Be still - it’s easier.
I know, but I’m restless.
It won’t be long.
Do you remember?
Remember what?
Remember the light.
Of course I remember.
It was warm.
Sometimes too warm.
Never too warm.
Hush - go to sleep.

I have pretty dreams.
Yes, I do too.
I can fly.
So can I.
It’s very beautiful.
Yes, I know.
Will we fly together?
Of course little one.
Where will we go?
Everywhere I suppose.
Can we fly to God?
I don’t see why not.
I’ll be good.
You are good little one.

I’m tired.
Then sleep for a while.
Will I wake up again?
Certainly you will awaken.
I hope that you will be here.
I am here, little one.
I was beautiful you know.
What do you mean?
As a caterpillar.
Of course you were.
Did you see my spots?
I saw them every day.
I think I crawled rather well.
No one crawled better.
I liked the way you crawled too.
Thank you my dear.
We crawled nicely together, didn’t we?
We made a fine couple.
Will we be beautiful again?
I have no doubt we will.
Will we have spots?
Yes, we will have spots.
What color will they be?
I don’t know, wait and see.
Will we be the same?
Go to sleep little one.

Yes, I am sleepy.
Let yourself go - dissolve.
I am dissolving.
Let your wings grow.
Wings - how wonderful.
Yes, it is wonderful.
I love you.
I love you too, little one.
We will fly together?
Yes we will climb very high.
Where will we come to rest?
In the heart of God.
Oh - I thought so.
Now hush - dissolve - grow.
Will you be there when I wake up?
I will always be here.
Good night my love
Sleep well little one.
Good night.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
