Lost in Madison Woods

I stumble.  I fall.  Gnats and flies and mosquitoes buzz around my head.  My arms and legs resemble a pepperoni pizza.   I would give anything for a pepperoni pizza at this point.

Or just a glass of water.  I squint toward the distant light but my eyes are almost swollen shut.

Got to be near the end.  Almost there.  Just a little further.  Someone would be looking for me, right?  Did I tell anyone where I was going?

One step at a time.

There in front of me is the chrysalis… the same one I saw three days ago.

  1. Oh, man! Going in circles. And the title is “picture” perfect.

  2. Ruth, I loved the title. That would be a sickening feeling if you found you’d been going around in circles. I heard that’s happened to a lot of people. We should probably carry a compass if we go into the woods. I, of course, don’t intend to go into the woods. Well written. 🙂 —Susan
