Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 338 BOUND and Sway.

Caterpillars bound
From cacoons came butterflies
swaying gracefully.

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. Twice a week I used to go to a home for the mentally challenged . But I have not gone there since March 2020. I will start going there again but I do not know when. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

  1. I love those photos. For some reason they gave me a feeling that reminded me of a moment in childhood looking at something similar. I tried to grasp exactly what the memory was but it didn’t come to me. It was a pleasant sensation nonetheless.

    I’m really curious about what they feel like in metamorphosis. I learned recently that the caterpillars turn almost completely amorphous and gelatinous and then reassemble themselves. Does it hurt? Do they understand what is happening when it’s going on? Then I think about humans. We often have similar big changes. We have big changes when we’re teenagers, and sometimes later in life also. While our bodies might not lose their shape, our minds might not feel put together as it should be during those transitions. But then we reform into something new and better. Here’s hoping that, metaphorically speaking, this is what 2020 and the time just afterward is for us all. I’m ready for our world to turn in to a beautiful butterfly.

  2. I am as amazed as an adult as I was when I first learned of this as a child. I enjoyed Todd’s further discussion above. Sometimes I feel rather like an amorphous shape myself as I am changing.
