|There is such a development of inner feedback here, Kate. Of Butterflies And Beasts expresses real feelings toward greater acceptance of our total being---emotional, intellectual, and physical. There is a psychological climate of safety here, free toward the flight of inner expression and a collaborative relationship of nature's beauty and beast without distracting from revelation. Blessed Be.

|we awaken our desires and passions when the beasts and butterflies of our inner nature live in harmony outside our lives ... our eyes reopen and assume our true shape ...|
|Reviewed by George Carroll
|I agree with Susan's comments.|
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|This is a fine poem on the tug of war that persists between the beauty and the beast in all of us. Especially when we have been abused or demeaned as children. Your experience deals with this in ways that many cannot and it is for our benefit to see it for the reality of what it is. Excellent work Kate!

|Whoa! too many Walnut Whirls girl lol. Wow! Kate this is a belter, your every word carries and projects the imagery right into my psychological collection of etamological things (earwigs in boxes... remember?). I'm saving this one Mizz Moneypenny...that spy bloke is well impressed. Where's Turner these days? is he sulking because the Gooners got beat;)
|Reviewed by Susan de Vegter
|Pain is passion too and the passion here of animal and flight is perfected in the colors only a deep and richly focused individual could create. Brava!!!
|Reviewed by Peter Paton
Has a torturous and agonizing feel to the thread of this poem...
Some memories are best erased completely from the subconcious...
|Reviewed by Aberjhani
|And so it sometimes goes that the nightmare realities which invade youth become the eroticized hauntings of later years. A psychologically penetrating and painfully beautiful work.

|wow, this is awsome, needs several readings Kate.......so many layers..we must be on the same wave length, I have been writing a vampire story........your fang reference struck a cord........
But I see a child survivor of abuse, incest?
A damaged soul, stilling the pain, by inflicting elsewhere
like she saw herself as the butterfly, in the hands of her abuser? Helpless........
this is disturbing, and thats what shows its power........
maybe I am off today?
maybe I am not.....
sometimes I read poetry too quickly.......and see things superficially, and sometimes I mine too deep..........
you are a gifted wordsmith.....everything comes thru.......
like butterflies and beasts
ty kate........pax A
