Fires Around Us

We should be choking on the flames. Skin stained from the soot.

Fields of fire / symbolizing fertility and future. Great blazes / competing with the sun.

We must re-direct their anger. Re-ignite and re-name their passion.

It’s not too late for mothering and macaroni and cheese. It’s not too late for an afternoon of fathering and fishing.

Parenting not partnering.
