|The instincts of nature know little boundary. Your poem evokes the notion that existence is permanent, only the form changes as one iteration dies out and another is born. Your choice of the moth imbues vulnerability with fresh consideration, allowing the reader to pause and reflect on the way he or she behaves, knowing both physical and mental power is not immune to vulnerability either. Few words, energized thought.|

|Interesting ponderings, djl. A worthwhile thought-process, (IMO) that lends itself nicely to metaphor. Peace ... rlc|

|Good thought for the poor moth, but no she is drawn
to the celestial light of the sun in an attempt to
hide herself somewhere from predators. It is her
beacon that raises her up to fly as though it was
morning light, much like how sea turtles are
confused by beach lights when it is the moon they
look to on their way back to the sea.
Beautiful write Diana
Love and Light
|Reviewed by Ronald Hull
|It is sad that so many moths are attracted to their death. We are the culprits for having to have fire and light throughout the night. I haven't looked it up––I should––but the moth is probably attracted to light as part of its ritual and the light is a reflection of the moon or even a phosphorescent part of a mate's wings destined to attract.

|That is as good an explanation for the moth's deadly love affair with the fame, Diana. Your blog link sent me to an AD page, but not to your blog.|
