A Butterfly Emerging From A Cocoon

October 16, 2009
A yellow yoke dripping from a cracked egg,
The sun between the clouds,
Light trickling down a hallway from an open door,
A dog's slobbery tongue giving you a kiss,
A daffodil bud about to open,
Pealed green beans exploiting the bean,
Water from a hose, Blood from a gash,
Walking into hanging beads,
Ripping open a birthday present,
Popping a balloon,
Sticking out your tongue,
M&M's spilling out into your hand,
Sticky and sweet; colors of the rainbow,
Fruit Loops from box to bowl,
Pepsi dripping from the bottle,
Peeling an orange,
Candy tumbling out of a Piñata,
An inmate clawing from his cell,
Red lipstick twisted up from a black tube,
A butterfly emerging from a cocoon
