The Mag 151 My Cocoon


I am safe
In my pink cocoon. 
No bad colors allowed. 
The barrier
Shuts out the dark
The cold
The things I don’t want.

I am safe
In my pink cocoon.
I will emerge
Like a butterfly
Leaves its chrysalis
Beautiful and vibrant
Ready to gather nectar
And explore the world.
Until then

I am safe
In my pink cocoon.

this is like the ultimate snuggy... love the pink cocoon poem... when the sun comes out she will come out of that pink cocoon

The ultimate snugly, indeed - womb-like.

Nice take on the pic. I like to see what sort of butterfly emerges from that cocoon! lol

Reminds me of something that Sigourney Weaver might wear! Can't focus on your words...the image is a little too much!...:)JP

Pink Cocoon looks very comfy! Happy you are safe . . .

You took a strange photo and turned it into such a comfy idea, I want one of these now, there is days I might like to stay in it all day long! :-)

Sandy said...

That's a first, unique long sweater. It looks very silly pulled like that. Great tale though.

Irene said...

I rather like that. If I were her, I'd stay inside for a long while and put off coming out as long as possible. She does look very comfy. I wouldn't mind having a pink sweater like that myself. xox

I am reminded of the old Beach Boys song ... 'In My Room.'

She certainly does look safe and warm. I like the repeating lines. Good job.
