Metamorphosis - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

Chrysalis: jade pendant,
suspended in the wind
from a dill weed stem
like a Chinese lantern.

Beauty concentrated,
compressed,
bottled up,
wired to explode.

    Fine poem, Sonny. Excellent imagery. You might consider writing it as
    2 stanzas of four lines each. The second stanza could read:
    Beauty concentrated,
    compressed,
    bottled up,
    wired to explode.
