30 Words: Fire

A light in the darkness
Warmth from the cold
Survival to some
Destruction for others.
It lit our way out of caves
And gave us the spark to be more.

    1. Jean, I was totally pulled all the way back to the roots of fire for some reason. I can't even explain where that came from. I'm pleased you like! :)

    2. I LOVE Mobile and have quite a bit of family around there still. We used to spend every spring break and quite a few Thanksgivings there at my great aunt's place on Dog River.

    3. That's so cool. . .even weirder, I have a great aunt who lives on Dog River. She lives WAY upriver though and we never got in the water up there. :)

  9. How very powerfully archetypal! I love the connect to the allegory of the cave. All things are a double-edged sword, that gives life and can take it away. Nice!

    1. I'm so glad you saw so much in my few words. Thank you. Sometimes the words get away from before I even have a chance to think about them. I think they all came together. :)
