Beautiful Confidence

in a golden sunlit garden 
around the bubbling fountain
butterflies flirt and flutter
among flashy flowers 

attracted and bidden
into this carefully hidden
location, they don’t ponder
at all the lovely wonder

they don’t doubt their beauty 
but appreciate the diversity
of all the various inhabitants,
even the plain human giants 

when surrounded by so much bling
simply stretch imaginary wings
and in confidence utter 
words to make your heart flutter 


This is part of my April poetry writing challenge (NaPoWriMo) where I post a poem every day in April for National Poetry Month. This year I decided to write 30 poems based on the theme of A Fairy Forest In Spring.

This poem is based on the prompt butterflies.
