A Caterpillar’s Wisdom

A Caterpillar’s Wisdom

written by: Olivia Todd



I am a caterpillar long and free
trundling along without worry—
no wings required to carry me.
A gourmet of leaves
while my sisters and brothers slumber
in silky sleeves
life on pause, in a dream.
But I have none.
I’m content just rolling on.
Whatever the wind may blow my way.
