Yet Another Fractal

Here’s a grazing caterpillar
Adored by ants who lap
Honeydew excreted from her back:
And later when she’s cocooned
Inside their nest, they keep vigil
Until she’s transfigured, silk tomb
Split wide, they’ll guide her outside
To watch, antennae waving as her wings
Catch a breeze and she’s risen again.
