We share the planet with some insects, the butterflies.
Their pupa is like a leafy case.
They eat and eat and eat…
And then they create an object of wonder,
They hide inside for a while.
You might think, Why do they sit inside,waiting?
When they break out, they are no longer caterpillars.
They have changed.
Now they have a sleek body,powerful flanks, and grand wings.
I wonder if they change back into caterpillars?
