Well, really, Rachael! What have you done to us now?
Rachael of Rach Writes... has given all the Campaigners a task to write, in 200 words or less, a piece with the word Imago in the titles and including the words miasma, lacuna, oscitate and synchronicity. Hummph! Here’s my contribution to the task:
The Imago Stage
There’s movement among the miasma of rotting vegetation
Pupae have too long been huddled together in diapauses
Now they are shuddering,
Straining against fine lacunas in their membranes
Each pupa has a weak spot,
The lacuna oscitates and
A crushed, distorted creature emerges.
Glistening wings dry, extend,
Colours obscure the rotting background
And with perfect synchronicity butterflies take to flight.
Such is the imago stage of holometabolism.
