Butterfly moment: in-Affect

Another breakup’s cropped haircut
stylised defiant, like
Hepburn’s pixie curls, of innate poise.

Yet, this radiant: butterfly moment
of self-affirmed growth
dampens, none of her zest for life
showcased, upon that glistened face
of staunch belief
in all-things rays of sunshine, sanguine
and glisteningly golden, iris
of self-willed ardour
for life’s gaiety of sublime.

Phoenix capacity, to reborn triumphantly
from those accursed, ashes
of our most fantastically curated, dreams.
