message – July 8

Message in a bottle for July 8th – “inner wisdom”

Every year I host a cup of caterpillars in my classroom
for the month of April
and a tiny bit of May
until they finally finish their transformation
and we let them go
with great fanfare.

It never fails to amaze me
how entranced my students are
by the plight of those fat, feasting larva
and utterly beside themselves with joy
to see the butterflies they become
take flight.

And if the only thing they witness
and  come to believe is true
is that transformation happens
given time,
how beautiful is that.
