I once found a millipede outside
Curled up, like he was trying to hide
He said, “Check it out! This June
I’m making a cocoon –”
I’ll transform into a lovely butterfly!”


How often are we sorely disappointed because we aren’t the creature we want to be!

Last June I found this millipede and at first thought it was a caterpillar. Closer inspection showed millipede — pretty awesome millipede to be precise.

No, it will never transform into a butterfly — but it was totally cool in its own right.
