L.F. (part two)

Last spring as affection defied reason,
We set to building a love of our
Own. With nervous, trembling lips we

Arrived and began wrapping our love
Into a tiny cocoon. It wiggled and
Squirmed in it’s precious infancy.

And we waited. We nurtured it. We
Protected it. We cuddled it. Inside it’s
Resilient skin we made love against

A backdrop of lives we no longer
Recognized. We shared secrets and
Stories against the pillows of

Deceit and laughed each time our
Love lurched inside. Leaves left and
Came again and like all worms, lovely

Cocoons broke open all around us. The world
Was alive with the buzz of newborn delight. And
As ours stretched her beautiful wings wide,

Like all Monarchs, she flew far, far away.
