Tom Sterner writes and shoots

~butterfly poet~

~it finally arrived~
~that day words wouldn’t come~
~the empty feeling refused to go~
~he tore his hand~
~from the glove of his mind~
~watched his imagination~
~those minute remnants left~
~dribble onto the notebook~
~a blot pattern blood ink~
~he wrote an ode to the butterfly:

~whose wings of earth~
~& feet of sky~
~an invitation to glory~
~the likes of which I~

~see sun through each~
~a fluttering~
~you are so much &~

~expect so little~
~you are at peace while I~
~envy you heaven~
~that fair bit of sky~

  1. Tom's muse is butterfly-like, inspiring beautiful but fragile, fluttering, insight
