Chrysalis

“As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame; 
As tumbled over rim in roundy wells 
Stones ring; like each tucked string tells, each hung bell’s 
Bow swung finds tongue to fling out broad its name; 
Each mortal thing does one thing and the same:” -Gerard Manley Hopkins, poem As Kingfishers Catch Fire

If you try to help a caterpillar break out of its chrysalis too soon, if you don’t let it struggle on its own, it never becomes this…

Monarch Butterfly

Don’t run from the struggle. Embrace and be grateful for it. It’s everything.

P.S. – Watch this amazing video of butterfly scales forming inside a chrysalis. You will believe in magic.
