Adventures in the garden

#Promptuarium #HugeCreatures

we went looking for bugs in the garden

each of us using a magnifier,

every kind of insect was spotted

varying from a caterpillar to a spotty ladybird

in fact many were interested in our

looking glass – 7 weevils in a line looked like monsters!

In time – you’ll become a wonderful thing

Noted for the wonderful patterns on your wing

Caterpillar family – small you may be

Hoping to sleep in the best of the tree

When you are little – you cannot be seen

Out eating the leaves of the trees whilst you’re green

Remaining on trees till you start to take flight

Making small kids smile from morning through night

Butterfly

by Brian F Kirkham

 

Born from a tiny little egg

the caterpillar emerges

eating every leaf of green

it moves each every single leg

as it eats and growth it surges

till one day it hides away – to return with wings

it hides away unseen

and then the moment it breaks out – and its colour sings
