Chrysalis

Wrapped up tight in my blanket warm,
Comfortable and snug, pondering I lay;
A wish blossomed that I were in a cocoon of peace;
Impermeable, impenetrable!
Safe from evil,
Away from harm,
Devoid of worries,
Free from fears,
No attachments and no strings attached;
Nothing to decide, nothing to face;
Only bliss, eternal and serene.
With the flicker of a candle my eyes opened wide
Realization dawned, slowly yet surely.
I am but still a caterpillar.
Leaves aplenty!
Aplenty to chew
Before I freeze!

  1. Thats so profound Jaish. I go through these 'sessions' too when there is a class oing on and the speaker is able to grab the attention of my wavering mind and hold it. :)
