Monarch

It is encapsulated
Entombed to grow
Captured by time
Free of worry
Closed off from light
Transforming alone
Becoming beautifully detailed
Inside of change
Wrapped tightly
Gently enclosed
Gaining true self
Undeterred by the seasons
Left alone and waiting
Preparing for its escape
Readying for flight
Time will release it
Set it free
Sun will reveal it
Others will greet it
Wings to expand
Wind to lift it
Propel it
Floating
Adjusting to the breeze
Acknowledging airlessness
Exploring new abilities
Satisfying new hungers
Embracing being different
