I was thinking on what to blog about for the letter ‘B’.Then, as I opened the Google page today was surprised to see an interesting Google Doodle.Today, April 2nd is the birthday of Maria Sibylla Merian, a Swiss naturalist who has made significant contribution in documenting the metamorphosis of Butterfly. I dedicate this post to her posthumously.
Underside the leaves I was lying in a shell patiently waiting,
I broke the shell as a caterpillar and ate the place where I was laid,
I kept eating over and over again happily in the glade,
Shedding my skin repeatedly with the hope of flying.
After eating enough I had to prepare for my flight,
I then decided to shed my skin for one last time,
I wriggled through to become a lazy bulky motionless pupa,
I camouflaged with the leaves for another fortnight.
Then, I went through a marvelous transformation period,
During which my camouflaged skin started displaying colors,
I was a little apprehensive to move in the beginning,
But my wings started to sway and I began to move away.
For the remaining part of my life, I was flying from flower to flower,
Aiding as a pollinator and bringing a smile in the human eye.
