Prompt word CHRYSALIS
Her cocoon so soft and warm
safe
Stay she would in this time and
place
The world outside could whirl and
twirl
She’d stay inside protected a good
girl
No matter how they poked and
pried
Inside her cocoon so safe she never
cried
Out there were monsters and evil
things
Protected in her cocoon she hid her
wings
Pretending her chrysalis had yet to
be
To emerge from here they might not
see
Past translucent wings of unearthly 
cadency
To a mind riddled with abstract
insanity

    Stunning, stunning, stunning…we can all relate to this, so powerful in topic and in style, with its fundamental ‘message’ and specific ideas to current situations. Such a stunning concept. This is what poetry is for. Hope my words were not too pretentious, certainly so appreciative.

  4. I love the thought of having such protection… alas there is so much coming from the outside world to intercept our sleep

    1. Most definitely. I’ve gone many nights now without sleep or only an hour or two. I’ve often thought that a couple asleep in each other’s arms was very cocoon-like. ~Gypsie
