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.


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
