They were both very sober and quite. What did the mysterious message mean? Had the caterpillars fallen from the very top? Finally, Stripe announced: I must go and find out the secret of the top. She loved Stripe and wanted to be with him. She wanted to help succeed. But she just couldn't believe that the top was worth all it asks to get there.
She wanted to get "up" too; the crawling life wasn't enough for her either. She also had to admit that it looked like the pile was the only way to do it.
She also felt stupid and embarrassed since she could never put her reasons into words that his kind of logic would accept. Yet somehow, waiting and not being sure was better than action she couldn't believe in. She couldn't explain, she couldn't prove anything - but for all her love she couldn't go with Stripe. She just knew climbing was a wrong way to get high. And Stripe left her for his climb.
HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS
She crawled daily to the pile looking for him and returning home at night sad, but half relieved that she never saw him. If she had, she feared she might plunge after him knowing that she shouldn't. She felt like doing something, anything, rather that this uncertain waiting. One day a grey haired caterpillar hanging upside down on a branch surprised her.
He seemed caught in some hairy stuff. It flies with beautiful wings and joins the earth to heaven. It drinks only nectar from the flowers and carries the seeds to love from one flower to another.
Full text of "HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS"
Life is changed not taken away. Isn't that different from those who die without ever becoming butterflies? I'm making a cocoon. It's better than all the hugging caterpillars can do. But she sadly knew he was far into the pile to possibly reach. Maybe he will want to become one too! What if he doesn't recognize my new self?
Suppose he decides to stay a caterpillar? We can love in some way. How can two cocoons get together at all? How awful to get stuck in a cocoon? What did she have to go on? The grey- haired caterpillar continued to cover himself with silky threads. As he wove the last bit around his head he called: For courage she hung right beside the other cocoon and began to spin her own. For courgae she hung right beside the other cocoon and began to spin her own. That's some encouragement that I'm on the right track.
If I have inside me the stuff to make cocoons - maybe the stuff of butterflies is there too. S Stripe made much faster progress this time. He was bigger and stronger since he had taken time out. From the beginning he determined to get to the top. He especially avoided meeting the eyes of other crawlers. He knew how fatal such contact could be. He tried not to think of yellow. He disciplined himself neither to feel nor to be distracted.
Even among climbers he was special. He was just doing what he had to if he was to get to the top. Then one day he was near his goal.

Soon after, he felt tremendous pressure and shaking. Then came screams and falling bodies. Then silence; lots more light and less weight from above. Stripe had done well but when light finally filtered down from the top, he was close to exhaustion. At this height there was almost no movement. All held their positions with every skill a lifetime of climbing had taught them.
Every small move counted terribly. There was no communication. Only the outsides touched. They were like cocoons to one another. Then one day Stripe heard a crawler above him saying, "None of us can get any higher without getting rid of them.
The mystery of the pillar was clear. He now knew what had happened to the three caterpillars. He now knew what must always happen on the pillar. Frustration surged through Stripe. But as he was agreeing this was the only way "up" he heard a tiny whisper from the top. They'll hear you down the pillar. To be so high and not high at all! It only looked good from the bottom.
The whisper came again, "Look over there -another pillar - and there too - everywhere! Was it courage to wait? I wish I were with her. Each seemed to be making a last effort to find some entry to the top. But with every push the top layer tightened. Maybe if we give one big pushl "They can't hold us down forever! Stripe struggled to the edge to see the cause. A brilliant yellow winged creature was circling the pillar, moving freely - a wonderful sight!
How did it get so high without climbing? When Stripe poked out his head the creature seemed to recognize him. It extended its legs and tried to grab him. Stripe caught himself just before being pulled out of the pile. The brilliant creature let go and looked sadly into his eyes. That look activated excitement Stripe hadn't felt since he first saw the pillar. It was all so strange and yet like it was supposed to be.
And those eyes with the look of Yellow. Could it be? Such impossible thoughts! Yet the excitement inside wouldn't stop. He grew happy.
Somehow he could escape, he could be carried away. But as this possibility became real, something else grew inside. He felt he shouldn't escape like this. He felt unworthy. He wanted to change, to make up for all the times he had refused to look at the other.
He tried to tell her what he felt. He stopped struggling. The others stared at him as though he were mad. This time he didn't curl up. He stretched out full length and looked straight into the eyes of each caterpillar. He marveled at the variety and beauty, amazed that he had never noticed it before. He whispered to each, "I've been up; there's nothing there.
