The Dewdrops and the Butterfly

The Dewdrops and the Butterfly

One morning shrouded in mist
The clouds gathered for a tryst

Dewdrops seeking frolic and fun
Descended long before the sun

Waking birds and bees, they pranced along
Humming and dancing on Nature’s song

They greeted a worm with sorrow profound
“Why are you dismal? In misery drowned?”

“The world is beauteous, colorful, and hued,
In contrast, I am hideous, so I brood.”

“Don’t let your belief shatter,
Appearances don’t matter.”

“You’ll become your best in your prime,
Focus on your strengths; it takes time.”

The worm cocooned, the drops bid goodbye,
“We’ll see you soon as a butterfly.”
