Caterpillars become butterflies

Caterpillars and Butterflies

by Taminang Therese N


At the beginning of summer, comes

Beautiful caterpillars that have survived the winter.

Caterpillars usually metamorphose into butterflies.

Dangerous caterpillars may turn out to be very beautiful butterflies.

Elegantly looking, they beautify our compounds when they are

Flying around colorfully in summer,

Gathering pest around and

Helping in the pollination of our plants.


In effect, they also fall prey to other animals like bats and birds, as food

Just imagine them falling in the claws of these preys and can't

Kindle their young ones for their procreation

Long Live their generation, as some would always survive

Making sure procreation is continued

Not even God would end what he created

or terminate their existence


Preying bird would always prey

Quick and swift they go

Resting not from food search

Some would eat nothing

Than praying insects

Unless they meet fruits or chaste

Very beautiful butterflies all day to eat

Waxing strong, that’s how they live

Xello will let you choose to care for insects or animals like

Zebras in the future.
