March Fiction: the wings of a butterfly (a poem)

by Adaline Griffiths, Age 15, USA

The fiction prompt of the month for March was “butterflies.”


the wings of a butterfly

iridescent wings
they glow in the sunlight
they shimmer and they shine as they fly
tender creatures of God
fragile but not weak
created to make us smile and to protect us
the wings share their purpose
colourful and true
changing with the seasons
as they change too
never seem to tire, but beautiful at all times


Adaline writes: “I have been writing as long as I can remember, and in the last couple of years I have been trying to develop my skills and find out where I fit in as a writer. My favourite pieces to write are fiction short stories, but I also enjoy writing novellas and poetry.”
