Haiku Carpe Diem #131, Caterpillar

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt is Caterpillar.

I’ve been away for a while and though back, I’m a little short on time and so here is a quick post to get me back into the saddle.

Caterpillars on parade
Walk the Laval line

Walk the Laval line
Learn to be a good Pupal

The Moth flies into the light
Kafka’s Imago

      I tried to fit in the stages of the Caterpillars lifecycle.
      The Laval stage is one, and these Caterpillars march in a line.
      Imago is the final stage of a Caterpillar’s Metamorphosis – which in turn is a Kafka story.


  5. Wow! very creative and fun haiku ~ tinges of ‘Johnny Cash’ walking the line ^_^


  6. Kafka would understand!


  7. You are a real renaissance man – well-read and well-versed….I had to google the ‘laval line’ and ‘kafka’s imago’, and am even smarter now thanx to you! I have morphed.,.Seriously, this was so beautifully and intelligently written,
