Haphazardly flies around

Lands on a button.

There is no end, but addition: the trailing

Consequence of further days and hours,

While emotion takes to itself the emotionless

Years of living among the breakage

Of what was believed in as the most reliable –

And therefore the fittest for renunciation.

— from The Dry Salvages by T.S. Eloit

I went for a walk in Sabino Canyon early this morning to check out the Sabino creek flow over the dam. Above the dam near the creek I found a lot of buttonbush in bloom, with a lot of insects swarming over the flowers. One of the many insects was this beautiful viceroy butterfly.

With all the insect interest, I can see why another common name is “honey-bells.” They may be honey to insects, but this plant contains the poison CEPHALATHIN. Cephalathin will induce vomiting, paralysis, and convulsions if ingested.

The creek is now dry
Still the flowers and red fruit
Shadow the creekside.
