Life stirs gently,

within the tiny cocoon.

Pushing through the barrier,

the creature emerges soon.

Slowly breaking free,

it stretches its tiny wings.

Flying off gracefully,

to explore its awakening.

Fluttering quickly,

it dances on the air.

On silk-like limbs it travels

with elegance and flair.

A fragile butterfly,

nature's delicate treat.

Sadly it won't live long,

its existence bittersweet.
