A Little Green Caterpillar

The sixth day of Navaratri brings the colour of nature and youth! The green colour is of fertility and monsoon.

A Little Green Caterpillar

The perfect blue sky

And pleasant weather

Inching towards a leaf

Was a little green caterpillar

 

The sun could not clean

The Gloom in its heart

Coz the ever-eating caterpillar

Was always laughed at a lot

 

Ashamed and anguished

It decided to go on a diet

With the last glance at the feast

It walked away sad and quiet

 

The wind blew with a naughty grin

Made the leaves rustle with glee

Hearing nature making a plea

The caterpillar went on an eating spree

 

It ate and ate and ate and ate

Leaves and flowers, pods and pollen

Until it got wrapped in a cocoon

Covered in threads silky and swollen

 

Needless to explain

What has nature made

The cocoon broke

And a butterfly fled
