a shell... a life...

photo from Magpie Tales...
(my first try...)

just like a cocoon
so beautiful, so calm
but a there will be a time
for the butterfly to go
and see the beauty of flowers...

just like a nest
carefully constructed by birds
to lay eggs and nourish their offspring
yet there will be a time for baby bird to leave
fly high and search for his place
to have his own...

just like a home...
built, for a comfort of a family
yet there will come a time for children to go
and have their own...

a shell,
a shelter, a beauty, a comfort,
but soon its gonna be empty...
why? to search for a bigger one
or to nourish human...

purpose of life...
a purpose of beauty...
a purpose of a thing....
