Birthing Paradox

there is hope
in the dynamics of death,
and the miracle of re-birth.

in labor pain
followed by the joy of life.

in caterpillars eating mindlessly,
weaving a web of transformation
and a cocoon of possibility

in humanity.
consuming voraciously,
to fill its immature desires,

while seeking more,
a deep call,
Within the mystery of the heart

Ah, the heart of humanity,
born to reflect
the glory of it’s maker,
the beauty of love
