Chrysalis (Day 220)


From all sides 
beleaguered  he curls inward 
sea anemone  protecting 
its tender center  
chrysalis  undefended  vulnerable 
somehow valiant in pure 
inevitability  facing down storms  
exposed  yet diffident  
his strategy  detachment 
rolled and coiled 
in deepest dark 
in singular solitude  it begins 
in a crystal spark 
a listless centering  elemental 
listening will be his 
salvation  intuition  the springtime of 
his moist-winged fluttering  
carried aloft 
by a grateful current
