  8. Well Amity, isn't it marvelous how nature was made. The beautiful new born, be it butterfly, human baby, or puppy dog comes from a not very pretty container.
    There is a reason but I sure don't know it. I enjoyed this little haiku.

  9. wonderful Amity! So true, a bit like the story of the ugly duckling. I also wrote a number of poems for this, all different completely. Then I thought of the bees flower petal nest and I had to do a piece of art and a poem....Thank you for your lovely comment.

  11. And the magic is within life itself. Amity, your poem also points out how much beauty is in the world if we take the time to look past to surface to see what is actually inside. Rob.
