Toward Indigo Flight


In Autumn's abundance,

Trees bear seeded fruit--legacies of life not yet born--

And plants yield juicy, green leaves, filling gluttonous stomachs

As all prepare for dormancy.


In winter's starkness comes Radical transformation,

As we to our active chrysalises cocoon ourselves 

And digest all--

Consuming who we've been,

Leaving only golden-gleaming imaginal discs, 

Sleeping cells to form what is not yet born.


Unto our multi-legged paths, we make our way

As larvae caterpillars,

Consuming with ravenous hunger

All that earth springs forth--

Indulging in orchard weighted trees,

Feasting on luscious nuts, apples, and tangy cherries 

Just as birds in migratory flight make

Meals on lush magnolia cones popping with meaty red-orange seeds 

And squirrels gnaw at acorns to take on winter fat. 


Metamorphosis--to thrive, not just survive!

Changing with conspicuous growth toward indigo flight,

Toward higher states of consciousness in violet bliss

As imaginal discs grow within 

Taking shape as we, in hunger for more,

Digest who we are, to become what we are meant to be.
