Thank You Guys! :)

Thank you for your last two posts which I read closely and found
I appreciate the range of realities your have brought into the theme
of moral-cell-earth equivalence, relating to the present heat wave
and the forces at play in and behind that. Asuric cultural death,
hatred from war, culling of animals, suffering fire spirits, and the
failures of spiritual initiatives, are baleful contributions as you
relate. After reading your also well referenced work, I feel it.
One of my loving interests is in the elements, animals, and elemental
beings, which are lovingly present in your writings here. I, as many
here are, am interested in recognising elementals beings
imaginatively to help them from enchantment.
Reading the good work here, and its responsible watch-tower duty, I
sometimes wish I could offer something; so on the Salamanders, which
you raised in your last writing, I feel I want to offer my poem on
Peacock Butterflies (in all its imperfections) which dwells on fire
imagery and weaves, in part, in fire sounds; it seemed the poem lived
in that element, because butterflies flicker and waver when they fly
like fire; and I read after I wrote it that they are closely related
to Salamanders. They are precious little things.
Little daughters of the east,
who rigged your wings?
You flick the wind.
The buddleia adores you.
And I daren't touch
for you all speckled dust,
mauve and lilac, saffron and gold.
Who unhooked you from the fire -
the glowing coals, the spitting logs -
let loose such wings
licking through bright air?
You cascade and veer,
and I must too,
as a butterfly in my chest
flickers and waivers
through a forest of rib,
igniting the heart,
as the daughters alight,
fanning slow on July-buddleia's purple vases--
that butterfly pasture of purple pots
to probe and rattle
with the long tongue.
How they turn nectar to a wing shout!
An eye winking in wing corner!
Four peacock eyes to confuse a flying lizard!
Butterfly fencing is their love sport.
And they must lay their glowing eggs-
like little flaming opals I expect-
in a sky-blue nest lined with sun feathers
and arrows from a Phoebus-guard
darting the cunning sky-fox who would steal.
And from this nest, hooked in air,
they always cascade;
waterfalling as if from dimples
the Sky made as she smiled.
Do they ever rest? Yes,
but in a ceaseless flaming way.
