When I received this book, I was impressed with the sheer volume of the volume. It is a big book, and I expected an in-depth detailed read that would span a nice amount of time. I found that my time with this book was not spent reading, but instead contemplating the journey this poet endured.

The Butterfly and Her Worm is an introspective series of short pieces, often only a few words to a page, that speaks to a series of internal and external events that not only challenged growth, but pressed it forward. It is not a difficult read, but it is a difficult read as you contemplate the emotions that are being challenged.

One cannot help but feel as the author relays difficult situations though verse, and those situations are quite obviously forcing growth.

I look forward to seeing more in the future as the author continues to grow, and finds their voice in the air now.
