a new cocoon…
wings folded, form fading,
reflecting back as ghost shadows
the dark circle of the forest
moves ever closer as
is done is done…what will
emerge as the continuum
unbounded, uncharted, starborne
she waits…her elements
I used the (repeated) butterfly cinquain form because Diana Peach’s #photoprompt illustration, above, for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday, made me think immediately of a butterfly/cocoon.
For the artwork I did a painting inspired by the illustration and then fooled around with it in Photoshop to try to convey a feeling of metamorphosis.
