For February's Poem of the Month I have chosen the poem  Butterfly by Tommy Murray
It is taken from his collection Swimming with Dolphins.








BUTTERFLY

It isn’t easy
Trying to make sense
Of these impromptu
Little sketches

And I need more
Than a fleeting glimpse
To appreciate the subtly
Of these ostentatious moments

Unless you’re trying to tell me
That I too
Might one day
Emerge from the darkness

That I too
Would have my
Twenty seconds of summer
And walk in a world
Beyond my wildest dreams
