Prompt 127: Cocoon

Tammie Lee of Beauty Flows brings us this week's prompt, cocoon. Here is her beautiful poem:

Born of Petals

being born in a cocoon made of petals

deep in the forest
treasures behold
petal by petal
cocoon takes hold
filled with protection
nutrition and more
essence is planted
her spirit and body are born
sunlight imbues
pink lavender golds
body and spirit are fused
a blossom born of petals

  1. Thanks for a beautiful poem and prompt this week, Tammie Lee. I was inspired!

  2. I agree. Many analogies from cocoons, metamorphosis and life in general. Makes for a lot of introspection.

  3. Such an interesting prompt! Thank you! The poem is wonderfully written as well! Very much an enjoyable read!


  4. I am trying to catch up but still far behind.
